About Us

Now in our 50th year, Bertrams was founded in a chicken shed in 1968 by the late Elsie Bertram, MBE and her son Kip. From these humble beginnings, Bertrams grew to become the UK’s leading book supplier to retailers large and small, in the UK and overseas.

We now offer a single source of supply from over 5,000 publishers from our 185,000sq foot warehouse. We supply a broad range of customers worldwide with next day delivery on over 200,000 in stock titles.

Bertrams strive to make bookselling easy, and our customers benefit from competitive pricing on over 10 million titles, and great customer service offered by both personal account managers and our experienced customer service team.  We also offer a range of marketing support to our customers, and regular great promotional offers.

Bertline is our market leading stock control system, used by more customers in the UK than all other systems combined.
