Conciliar Press Begins 2010 with a Move to Chicago


After over three productive decades in Ben Lomond, California, Conciliar Press is expanding its operations by moving to a new operations center and warehouse in the Chicago area. The Chicago facility began taking orders in early January, and with this centralized location, shipping will be more efficient. In addition, extended hours will allow for more cost-effective customer service and will keep operating costs to a minimum.

The toll-free number, 1-800-967-7377, remains the same, and at www.conciliarpress.com, customers can shop online. Conciliar Press operates under the Conciliar Media Ministries (CMM) umbrella, along with sister company Ancient Faith Radio, and is a department of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese.

The move to a Midwest based warehouse and fulfillment center allows for both companies to be run from the Chicago area. Father Peter Gillquist, one of the company’s founders, says “The move allows us to serve our customers even better than in the past.” Father Peter recently relocated to Indiana and remains on the board, providing a guiding influence over the operations of the company. John Maddex, President and CEO, says “the move is a positive step and provides a  productive climate for growth as we build on the heritage of Conciliar Press.”
