In 1856, Michael Henry Gill, printer for Dublin University, purchased the publishing and bookselling business of James McGlashan, and the company was renamed McGlashan & Gill. In 1875, it was renamed M.H. Gill & Son. In 1968, the company became associated with the London based Macmillan Publishers (founded 1843) and Gill & Macmillan was established. In 2013, the Gill family bought out Macmillan.
Gill operates three distinct divisions - Gill Education, Gill Books and Gill Distribution.
Gill Education is a schools publisher. Gill Distribution provides warehousing and distribution facilities to a range of domestic and international publishers.
