Broad Leys Publications Limited acquired the book titles and copyright of both Broad Leys Publishing and Gold Cockerel Books in November 2015. These acquisitions brought two long-established publishers under one roof. The costs of both businesses have been merged into one business and have dramatically reduced overhead costs. The combined business is reprinting existing books as they come up for updating with new covers and updated internal text as necessary. The ongoing business focus is to expand through both new titles to the existing range and the creation of Gold Pet Books, with titles for reptiles and other pets.
