ASE acquires Millgate House Education
18 October 2017
The Association for Science Education (ASE) is pleased to announce the acquisition of Millgate House Education (MHE), the creators of popular education books including ‘Science Concept Cartoons’ and ‘It’s not fair or is it?’.
Commenting on the acquisition, ASE CEO, Shaun Reason said: “We are delighted to have completed the deal; this is a superb opportunity for us. ASE and Millgate House Education started collaborating over a decade ago and this feels like a natural next step. This exciting development shows ASE’s commitment to great science education publishing and cements a longstanding and successful relationship in promoting science education. With such a natural fit between the organisations, there will be many ways in which we can cross-promote both to our members and to the wider education community.”
Millgate is an international publisher of teaching resources and provider of continuing professional development committed to working with teachers all over the world to provide ideas, insight and inspiration for learners age 4 -16. ASE has been publishing for over 50 years; its bookshop stocks over 200 education titles and it is the only independent specialist science education bookshop in the UK. ASE’s own brand continues to command significant loyalty in the science marketplace and the addition of Millgate will enhance that reputation.
Shaun added: “The addition of Millgate strengthens our capability and presence in the publishing of science education resources, further increasing choice and flexibility for teachers and students across a widening range of subject areas. Millgate’s track record, and excellent reputation particularly in primary education where it commands great trust, will enhance our own publications business – it is a perfect addition. I believe that this is an important step at a time when the publishing landscape demands creativity and innovation more than ever to ensure success. Together we hope to diversify and innovate what’s on offer for the science education community and we will continue to work with authors dedicated to sharing teaching practice.”
