Hopkins Fulfillment Services (HFS), a full-service distributor for university presses and non-profit institutions, and University of Toronto Press (UTP) are pleased to announce an expanded partnership for the distribution of UTP titles in the U.S. effective February 1, 2024.

UTP and Hopkins Press have much in common, as mission-driven organizations with long-standing publication programs and distribution businesses. In fact, in 2022, HFS entered into a distribution partnership with UTP for the Canadian market on behalf of clients.

“We look forward to expanding our partnership with Hopkins Press and joining such a prestigious list of clients,” says Antonia Pop, Vice President of Publishing at UTP. “Hopkins shares many of our core values, notably a steadfast commitment to exemplary customer support and a focus on developments in the global marketplace. We are excited about this expanded relationship as HFS will help us increase our presence and reach new audiences in the U.S.”

“We’ve found UTP to be a strong partner with a similar model and approach. We’ve enjoyed collaborating with them in Canada and look forward to sharing our knowledge and resources here in the U.S.” said Davida Breier, HFS’s Director.

“Working with UTP is incredibly energizing. We are so grateful to be enriching our partnership and look forward to helping them enhance their reach in the U.S. as they have done for us in Canada,” says Barbara Kline Pope, Johns Hopkins University Press’s Executive Director. “How’s that for bilateral relations?”

University of Toronto Press (UTP) is one of the largest university presses in North America, publishing landmark scholarship since 1901. Each year UTP releases over 200 new scholarly, course, and general interest books in print and ebook format and over 55 journals. In addition, UTP manages the distribution for over 200 publishers and imprints in Canada, the U.S., and around the world, with warehouses in Toronto, Ontario and Buffalo, New York. UTP also runs all of the University of Toronto Bookstores across the three main campuses, serving over 95,000 students and 15,000 faculty. For more information, please visit
