Gardner Business Media President Rick Kline Sr. announced the launch of Modern Machine Shop MEXICO, a print magazine and integrated media platform. The intent is to connect buyers and sellers of metalworking technology in Mexico to help them maintain world-class competitiveness in the global marketplace. Rick Kline Sr. said of the launch, “Mexico is a natural area of interest to us. It is our next door neighbor. It is a member of NAFTA. Mexico is a gateway to key markets to the south and a vital supplier to those in the north. Mexico has a strong manufacturing base and is experiencing some of the fastest growth in the world. We are developing a brand that will give metalworking professionals in Mexico a new source of insights into mainstream and advanced manufacturing technology.” Kline added that the new publication will also report on successes of local shops and plants that can be emulated by others in the country. The new business represents an international extension of Modern Machine Shop, which has served the metalworking industry in North America since 1928.

The first issue of Modern Machine Shop MEXICO will appear as a January/February edition that will be distributed in January 2015. Its reach will include a dedicated audience of selected production managers, engineers and manufacturing technicians engaged in the major manufacturing sectors of Mexico such as automotive, aerospace and medical.

Modern Machine Shop MEXICO is led by Gardner Business Media Metalworking Group Publisher Travis Egan, who formed a team of experienced media professionals united by their passion for and expertise in the metalworking market to develop and launch the new venture. The team includes Claude Mas (of MoldMaking Technology), who has been appointed as Publisher, and Eduardo Tovar, (formerly of Metalmecanica) who has been named as Editor-In-Chief. This pair represents more than 30 years of experience in the metalworking marketplace. Commenting on the brand, Egan said, “At Gardner Business Media, we are constantly pushing ourselves to develop the best product and process related content in the most effective format. Modern Machine Shop MEXICO is born from these efforts and is squarely aimed at promoting the strength and competitiveness of the metalworking market in Mexico.”
