About Tantor Audio

Tantor Audio has grown from a three person operation in California into a leading independent audiobook publisher, producing more than 50 new titles every month, in just ten years. Now located in two facilities in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, Tantor's talented team of associates, and over 70 of the industry's best narrators, are dedicated to providing the highest quality audio experience, all for the best value.

Tantor's formula for success starts with must–have authors and award–winning titles. Tantor's extensive catalog includes Man Booker, Pulitzer, and National Book Award winners, as well as countless New York Times bestsellers and titles with starred reviews from all the major publications. Tantor then adds the most popular and talented narrators to the mix, taking care to match the right voice to each book. The end result is award–winning audio. Tantor is the recipient of numerous Audie Awards, AudioFile Earphones Awards, Publishers Weekly Listen–Up Awards, and starred audio reviews.

Another key to Tantor's formula is audio innovation. Using proprietary software designed specifically for audiobook recording combined with print–on–demand technology, Tantor is able to quickly deliver today's hottest titles, in multiple formats, often simultaneous with the hardcover release. Look for more innovation to come as technology evolves.

Who is the elephant?

Tantor is Tarzan's elephant friend in Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the first audiobook we published. Tantor was chosen to represent the company because elephants never forget and we like to think of our titles as unforgettable. And just as those big ears make Tantor an excellent listener, our goal is to listen to—and respond to—our customers' needs.
