Westchester provides outstanding customer service, and the level of quality is predictably impressive on each project–which is why we rely on Westchester.”

One of my chief concerns initially was that an outside company could not match our high editorial standards. Not so! Working with Westchester makes great publishing the norm.”
- Garrett Brown, Director of Publications, The Mercatus Center

– Nancy Hoagland, Books EDP Manager, Duke University Press

“We recently had the Westchester New Delhi operation handle the Wonderful World 2E Lesson Planner adaptations and to say these were messy and complicated is underselling the challenges these presented. Westchester Publishing Services was excellent and able to meet program expectations, as well as schedule and budget requirements.”
–Michael Burggren, Senior Director of Production, National Geographic Learning
"Westchester's ability to provide high-quality production services for well-regarded legal publishers was an important consideration for our association. and gave us confidence in contracting out tasks like tagging, layout, and composition rather than managing them in-house. Doing so has freed up our editors to focus more fully on author management, recruitment, and providing expert legal editing for the content our professional membership relies upon us for in carrying out their work in the Maryland legal community."
- Andrea Terry, Director of Learning, Maryland State Bar Association
