Plant Engineering Applies For BPA Worldwide Business Publication Membership
Plant Engineering has applied for business publication membership in BPA Worldwide. The magazine is published by CFE Media, LLC (Oak Brook, IL). Established in 1945 and formerly a member of BPA Worldwide (under Reed Business Information ownership), Plant Engineering serves plant engineers and maintenance professionals within manufacturing and non-manufacturing industries.
BPA Worldwide will track circulation for Plant Engineering based on business/distribution, demographics and geographic coverage. The magazine will have 12 months to complete its initial circulation audit.
CFE Media was established in April 2010 when it purchased Consulting-Specifying Engineer, Control Engineering and Plant Engineering magazines from Reed Business Information. The three long-standing magazine brands have been serving the engineering industry for over 60 years and are continuing their longstanding relationship with BPA under new ownership. CFE Media serves as an engaging platform to bring together the worldwide engineering community through compelling subject matter and interactive applications.
“Partnering with BPA is a big next step toward fulfilling our mission at CFE Media for both our subscribers and our advertisers: providing a platform for content, community and applications that engages engineers worldwide to share, learn and increase productivity across all engineering designs, systems, and manufacturing plants,” said Jim Langhenry, Group Publisher, CFE Media LLC.
“We are pleased that Plant Engineering has applied for membership in BPA Worldwide,” said BPA president and CEO Glenn Hansen. “We applaud the publisher for providing advertisers and prospects with the solid assurance of an independent circulation audit conducted according to our world-respected, uncompromising standards. With a BPA audit, media buyers can be confident that circulation claims are accurate, and that they have the verified data that they need to assess a publication’s effectiveness in serving its market.”

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.
