Parkgate Press is their big brother, and arguably their Big Brother.
An imprint is a trade name a company publishes under.
They are created for a number of reasons, but often to distinguish one publishing list from another. The history of twentieth century publishing is deeply acquisitive, with many mergers and buy-outs. (The twenty-first century is looking no different!)
A brand name publisher you recognize is more than likely to be owned by a larger company and would therefore be an imprint.
