Our Scottish history

EAE (now part of Take One Media) was originally established in 1987 by a consortium of nine heritage, cultural and tourism organisations in Edinburgh who wanted cost effective ways of getting their promotional print into the hands of potential audiences and customers. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society were involved with the initial EAE Start-up discussions through The Edinburgh Capital Group.

By 2016, EAE had grown into Scotland’s largest print distribution and display specialists servicing 2,400 merchandised display stands and 3,000 outlets from 10 regional storage and distribution centres stretching from the Northern Isles to the English border. The only Scottish distributor to offer a one-stop nation-wide service through Scotland and now the whole of the UK through Take One Media and Menzies Distribution Ltd.

In September 2016, Menzies Distribution acquired EAE.




Our Scottish Operation

Our two national storage and distribution centres are located in Newbridge, on the outskirts of Edinburgh, and Kintore, to the north of Aberdeen.

Both of these centres have large, modern, state-of-the-art warehouse facilities that offer a mix of open warehouse space and pallet racking suitable for leaflets, brochures, posters, point of sale materials, display stands and more.

In addition, we have ten smaller, regional depots that stretch from Stromness on Orkney to Stranraer in Galloway. These help us to service our 5,000 display sites that are spread across every corner of Scotland.

Each of our regional depots provides a strong local presence that enables us to offer targeted services to clients who want to focus on generating business from within a particular area. In addition, the regional depots help us to reduce van journeys to and from our two national centres, saving on costs, time, mileage and carbon emissions.
