When you are looking to solve a problem in your plant, time is of the essence. When you’ve only got a few minutes each day to get up to date on manufacturing, you want concise information that gets right to the point. With new technology and strategies emerging each day, you need a trusted source to showcase the best new ideas in the market.

The newly-designed Website at www.plantengineering.com provides all those features, backed by 60 years of manufacturing excellence and a tradition of giving plant managers what they need when they need it. More than just a recap of the latest issue of PLANT ENGINEERING magazine, PlantEngineering.com will be fresh and new each day, with tips and strategies from every corner of the Web, including our own robust archive.

“We’ve made search easier for our readers,” said PLANT ENGINEERING editor Bob Vavra. “We’ve combined our own archive with more than 10 years worth of articles and insight with Zibb, the most complete manufacturing search engine in the business. Online users will be able to find exactly what they are looking for with a vertical search engine that focuses on the topics that most meet your needs.”

The Website will also feature regular blogs from industry experts, a new daily news site and a way to highlight specific topics of interest to readers every day. There will also be exclusive audio clips from product specialists and other industry leaders talking about the issues important to plant managers and plant engineers today.

“Our magazine readers tell us they get a lot of information from the Internet each day. In fact, 15% of our readers tell us they’re on the Internet constantly,” said Vavra. “We need to provide them with a great resource to help them gather information and stay ahead of the ever-changing curve in manufacturing. I think the new Website at www.plantengineering.com will do just that.”

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
