Global Plant Engineering is a partnership between Plant Engineering magazine and Hannover Messe, the German-based trade show organization. Attendees at Hannover Messe shows around the world will get free access to the e-book. Global Plant Engineering made its formal debut at the Hannover Messe show in Bangalore, India on Dec. 10, with editor Bob Vavra present to preview the e-book for more than 10,000 conference attendees.
"We are in a global manufacturing economy, and that economy is being strained today as never before," said Vavra. "The problems faced by plant floor managers around the world are the same. They are being charged with making their plant operations more efficient, safer and more productive while using less resources, natural and financial.
"Joining forces with Plant Engineering gives us a splendid opportunity to share the most exciting developments, topics and trends with our trade fair clientele, which comprises top industry buyers, sellers, decision-makers and users," said Dr. Wolfram von Fritsch, chairman of the board of management of Deutsche Messe.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
