FINKSBURG, Md.� Manuals Plusowner Nick Dawson confirmed plans to shutter the Maryland-based test and measurement equipment manual distributor in a phone interview Friday. He says the closing of this division will not affect the operations of parent company Ridge Equipment Co. Inc.

Dawson says the company�s lease will be up in June, and factors like the increasing availability of PDFs and versions of the manuals being sold on eBay also�contributed to the decision.

He notes that the building has about 1.6 linear miles of shelving, all filled with inventory. In order to avoid throwing all of these publications out, Manuals Plus says it will accept best offers for the manuals; this extends an opportunity to stock up on these publications at a discount. Send queries tosales@manualsplus.com� specific orders will be given priority.

Dawson noted his affection for radio clubs and encouraged Ham operators to contact Manuals Plus with requests.

Additionally, the company will host a warehouse sale in the first week of June, prior to its planned closure at the end of the month. �
