The corporate offices and retail shipping warehouse of Horizon Publishers are located in beautiful Bountiful, Utah, overlooking the Great Salt Lake. Bountiful is ten miles north of Salt Lake City, in southern Davis County.
The development of a major shopping mall impacted Horizon Publishers several years ago because a brand-new Costco was constructed where Horizon's printing and distribution facilities have been located for more than 25 years. Rather than purchase a new building, Horizon Publishers opted to merge with Cedar Fort, Inc. Under the present arrangement, CFI is distributing all Horizon Publishers' products to stores and other wholesale-level accounts, while Horizon Publishers continues to fill retail orders received by internet, telephone, etc. at their Bountiful offices.
In a unique arrangement between the two companies, as existing supplies of each book Horizon Publishers has published is exhausted, CFI has the option to reprint the book and acquire ownership of the product at that time. When three-quarters of all Horizon Publishers' products have thus been acquired, CFI will assume ownership of Horizon Publishers. Under the present arrangement, new titles published by Horizon Publishers are being released as books from "Horizon Publishers, an imprint of Cedar Fort, Inc."
We at Horizon Publishers value you as an ongoing customer, and want you to be pleased and satisfied with every product and service you receive from Horizon Publishers. We seek to give prompt and accurate fulfillment on all the retail-level orders which you place with us.
