TAN Books acquired by St. Benedict Press

.- Following recent financial problems and bankruptcy, TAN Books, a leading publisher of traditional Catholic books, has been acquired by the North Carolina-based Saint Benedict Press.

Since its establishment in 1967, TAN Books and Publishers has published more than 600 books, including classics such as its Baltimore Catechism series, the Douay-Rheims Bible, and dozens of biographical works by and about the saints.

Last week, its assets were purchased by the owners of Saint Benedict Press.

TAN Books and Publishers will become an independent imprint within Saint Benedict Press. According to a press release, the new business relationship will allow TAN to maintain its “brand identity and publishing direction” under Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Brent Klaske, who will assume general management duties.

"This is an exciting new day for TAN," said Klaske. "As a 15-year executive employee of TAN, I am thrilled that we will be able to continue our mission of sharing faithful Catholic books with people around the world.  The resources and commitment that our new ownership brings to the table will ensure the future stability and growth of TAN while still maintaining our fidelity to the Catholic Church and its teachings."

Conor Gallagher, Vice President of Publishing at Saint Benedict Press, commented on the acquisition, saying:

“We welcome TAN Books and Publishers as a great resource for traditional Catholic products and we look forward to providing a continuation of its existing publishing plan. This acquisition will make way for an increase in new titles and an ability to bring back into print many of the favorite titles which have been on permanent back-order as a result of TAN’s uncertain future.”

“Current TAN customers can be assured that the mission of TAN is not changing.  We will now have the ability to meet the needs of the customers and the thousands of book stores around the world that carry TAN titles,” Gallagher said.
