Miller Distributors Limited was the winner of the Financial Times Distributor of the Year Award at the 56th Distripress Congress held in Barcelona on Tuesday 18th October 2011.

Ian Denhard, Director of Logistics CEMEA & Manager of Circulation Emerging Europe at the Financial Times said: “Every year, at the Financial Time’s traditional Distripress dinner, the Financial Times recognises distributors who have achieved outstanding sales results or have implemented successful sales campaigns. Miller Distributors Ltd. has achieved a year-on-year sales improvement against the general market trend. This is testimony to how the bold decision to invest in innovative digital printing machinery is delivering returns to the distributor and the Financial Times. The Financial Times is looking forward to see this winning formula applied in other markets.”

Press Distribution is a core activity of Miller Distributor’s Limited operations, focusing on the importation, distribution, marketing and retail of a wide range of local and international titles.
On winning the Award, Malcolm Miller, CEO of Miller Distributors Limited, said, “As the Malta distributors for major global brands such as Financial Times, The Economist, Time, Newsweek, National Geographic, together with the UK National Press and local Malta Press, we operate a 7 day, 24-hour operation to meet the requirements of each publication. Distributing over 2,500 titles at daily, weekly and monthly frequencies, we are geared to service mass-market volume right down to single copy specialist titles. Subscription handling of single and bulk copies using our hand delivery or mail services is also an important area that is widely used by Publishers seeking a high level of service to their local readers. We service around 1,000 Press selling points with both local and overseas Press and a fleet of over 40 vehicles covering the whole of the Maltese Islands supports our distribution network.”
