American academic and professional publishers such as Stanford University Press and the American Mathematical Society use Eurospan to sell their books on this side of the Atlantic. The company has exclusive European distribution agreements with 125 publishers, supplying their titles to booksellers and wholesalers, including Amazon. It also markets them to academics, libraries and professional associations. The company was founded in 1967 by the father of managing director Michael Geelan.
