Coming soon: 2013 Engineers' Choice Award CALL FOR ENTRIES, for automation products newly available in North America between December 2011 and November 2012.

Note : The date sequence of the awards was changed for 2010 so that the award year reflects the year in which the awards are announced, rather than the year in which the products were introduced (as has been the practice in the past). As such there are no "2009" award recipients.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
