Textbook publisher West Academic will move its headquarters to downtown St. Paul by the end of the year.

The  Pioneer Press reports that West Academic will move its 60 employees to St. Paul's UBS Plaza, and will hire another 25 employees.

West Academic has been headquartered in Eagan since 1992. Thomson Corporation bought the company in 1996 before merging with Reuters Group in 2008. Last winter, Thomson Reuters spun off West Academic to Eureka Growth Capital, prompting the move.

The company, founded in St. Paul in 1872, publishes legal casebooks and study aids.

Thomson Reuters still has about 6,000 employees in Eagan.
