About Us

Newspread is Ireland’s leading wholesaler/distributor of indigenous newspapers and magazines. Established in 1971, the company expanded rapidly from facilitating a small number of select publications, to now distributing an extensive range of market-leading publications from our purpose-built facility in Park West, Dublin.

A wholly-owned subsidiary of Independent News and Media plc, our publishing clients include most of Ireland’s leading daily, Sunday and regional newspapers, as well as most of the top selling Irish magazines.

Originally operating in the Republic of Ireland only, today Newspread is a 32 county all-Ireland operation, resulting from the acquisition of leading Northern wholesaler WNS by Independent News and Media and its subsequent merger with Newspread. This expansion to an all-Ireland operation along with additional warehouse facilities in Belfast and Derry further enhances Newspread’s service offering through the convenience of dealing with just one wholesaler for the entire island of Ireland.

In recent years, Newspread has broadened its service offering beyond newspapers and magazines to offering a highly effective and efficient route to market to all suppliers of products to the retail grocery trade. With deliveries to over 6,000 retailers nationwide every day, Newspread is uniquely positioned to achieve very high market penetration levels for your products. In addition Newspread also provides a basic point-to-point delivery service through our national distribution network.
