Jose Manuel Robles-Michelena, proMexico, spoke during the official launch of MMS Mexico during IMTS. The magazine and website debuts in January 2015. 

 

At the recently completed IMTS, Gardner Business Media, parent company of PM, announced the launch of a Mexican edition of Modern Machine Shop. MMS is a sister publication of PM.

“Mexico is a natural area of interest to us,” says Gardner CEO Richard Kline. “It is our next door neighbor and a member of NAFTA. Mexico is a gateway to key markets to the south and a vital supplier to the north. Its strong manufacturing base is growing rapidly and is a world top-10 consumer of machine tools.”

According to 18-year metalworking media veteran, Eduardo Tovar, who will serve as editorial director, MMS Mexico will not just be a magazine. “Before our first issue in January 2015, we will launch a website, mms-mexico.com, and will be introducing other electronic products in the first year. Manufacturing engineers in Mexico need access to technical information to help them improve production processes, and we want to provide that information in whatever media they prefer.”
