Composition (also known as Typesetting) is Westchester Publishing Services’ core business. We are dedicated to providing high-quality composition services for publishers using state-of-the-art capabilities in Adobe InDesign, LaTeX, or 3B2 (Arbortext APP), as your publication requires. Our history of providing typesetting services to publishers dates back to 1969. Until the late 1990s, our typesetting was still performed in the U.S.
To remain competitive in the composition industry, in the early 2000s we began moving to offshore typesetting. In 2008, we acquired 100% of a top quality Chennai, India-based composition firm, which handles essentially 100% of all Westchester client composition projects – a small percentage of highly sensitive and confidential publications being typeset in a secure room in our Danbury, CT offices. Westchester does not farm out any client typesetting projects – nor do we take in typesetting work from other composition firms. Plus, our India-based composition operation is closely managed on a daily basis by our senior U.S. Director of Operations and Production, Terry Colosimo.
Our primary Composition Services:
Our composition expertise ranges from simple monographs to extremely complex reference titles, as well as highly illustrated juvenile titles, 4-color cookbooks, textbooks, professional books, technical manuals, policy group whitepapers and journals for academic and scientific publishing firms.
Our other Composition Services include:
In 2017, Westchester launched a new product line aimed at K-12 educational publishers, Westchester K-12 Publishing Services. This new division offers content development for U.S. classroom materials in Literacy, Math, Science and Social Studies, design and art services, page layout and composition production, thus a full-service range of pre-press services for the K-12 publisher.

In 2018, we established an affiliate in the U.K., Westchester Publishing Services UK, bringing on a U.K. publishing veteran as our Managing Director, and opening an office in Stratford Upon Avon. WPS-UK offers the same high quality and reliable pre-press services for publishers as Westchester U.S. Visit our Westchester U.K. website
