About UPS’s International Division

In January 2004, Andrews McMeel Universal (AMU) through its newspaper syndication company, Universal Press Syndicate (UPS), acquired Atlantic Syndication from Evening Post Publishing Company of Charleston, S.C. Atlantic Syndication, an international syndication company formerly known as Editors Press Service, will operate as a wholly-owned agency of UPS with an Asia-Pacific office in Sydney, Australia. Since 1971, Atlantic Syndication has worked as the primary representative for UPS outside the U. S. and Canada.

"Atlantic Syndication has both the structure and personnel to help us grow rapidly in the increasingly important international market," says Lee Salem, editor and president of UPS, based in Kansas City, Mo. "Worldwide interest in the American culture has never been greater. Atlantic's distribution and international marketing know-how will position UPS' artists, writers and news services to chronicle that culture on a daily basis to the world's media."

"The new ownership will only improve the relationships we have now with international clients. We will continue to offer the world’s best comics, features and columns," says Atlantic Syndication President and UPS Vice President Kerry Slagle. He oversees the operations, sales, marketing and acquisitions for the company and continue to manage the sales staff for Latin America, and in Asia and the Pacific along with the network of independent sales agents around the world.

Founded in 1933 as Editors Press Service, Atlantic Syndication was the first syndication company to market and sell American newspaper syndicate material outside the United States. The company began selling and distributing syndicated features into Latin America and at the end of World War II set up a network of independent agents throughout the world to sell American newspaper content.
