Established in 1975, Texas Book Company is one of the largest wholesale textbook companies in the United States, servicing the college textbook industry.


Texas Book began operations August, 1975, in Greenville, Texas. Originally offering a limited supply of used books to small colleges and universities, we have grown to be one of the largest wholesale textbook companies in the United States, working with thousands of college bookstores in all 50 states. In 1982, Texas Book Company answered the call for bookstore management services. With the Company's innovative leadership and trademark textbook expertise, Texas Book Company's College Bookstore Divsion has grown to be the leader in customer-focused campus bookstore management, and operates college bookstores in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.

As a long-standing member of the academic community, Texas Book Company offers unequalled bookstore management expertise, service excellence, and financial strength. Unlike all other academic retailers, we guarantee our bookstore partners immediate access to executive management, and a rapid response from Company decision-makers.

Texas Book Company's Wholesale Division provides universities and colleges a comprehensive used textbook program, which in turn, earns maximum profits for bookstores. Beginning with a nucleus of Texas bookstores, the company has grown to serve 2,000 stores in 50 states.

Texas Book Company's corporate office and distribution center remains in Greenville and is one the city's largest employers. In September 2003, Texas Book Company moved to a new 60,000 sq. ft. corporate headquarters and distribution center in the Technology Airpark. The new facility houses 18,000 square feet of office space and a 42,000 square foot warehouse and distribution center with over 250,000 titles in stock. State-of-the-art material handling and distribution systems can process over 5,000 shipments daily to customers around the country.
