About Us

BVT Publishing is a family-run textbook publishing company, with instructors and students as the point of focus around which our business model revolves.  Since 2003, we have been providing quality, affordable textbooks in a variety of disciplines.  Our founder is a former Economics professor who decided that his students were simply paying too much for their textbooks.  His son, also a former educator and now BVT’s president, has directed the company through several phases of growth over the past several years.  We continue to enjoy growth that comes from striving to meet and exceed market expectations for quality and service.

BVT Publishing represents quality, convenience and savings in several ways:

  1. Our books are updated regularly, but not unnecessarily.  Every two to three years, BVT Publishing makes sure the content of each of our books is current and relevant, while maintaining very reasonable net pricing.
  2. All of BVT Publishing’s textbooks are complete, not condensed or abridged editions.  With few exceptions, they are also in two-color or full-color formats, and we are increasing the list of titles that feature hard cover binding.
  3. Affordability counts, too!  Now, more than ever, textbook costs are critical to students and many adopting professors.  BVT Publishing is proud of the fact that other publishers’ comparable textbooks are two to three times what our net costs are.  We are now proud to also feature several titles in our Free Access format, to further our mission to maximize affordability for your students.
  4. Ancillaries.  Many of our books come with study guides and online support for our clients, including test banks, instructor manuals and PowerPoint slides (transparencies).  Please refer to “Attachment A” of this manual for complete details.
  5. Affordable online student support.  BVTStudents.com is a website offering students the ability to enhance their retention and comprehension of our textbook’s content, including flash cards, chapter summaries and self-quizzing.
  6. Online Student Bookstore.  BVTStudents.com also features an online bookstore, giving students the option of purchasing directly from us, in either hard copy or electronic formats.
