Feet on the Ground in Europe

Adding Barbara to our staff allows us to cast a wider net in order to bring you knowledgeable and experienced reporting from these important markets.

Meet Barbara Schulz, PM’s European correspondent. 

In an effort to give PM readers a look at some of the things happening outside North America, we have added Barbara Schulz as our Germany-based, European correspondent. Over time, she will be sharing the strategies, success stories and trends in other countries’ precision machined parts manufacturing industries because, despite globalization and globally available technology and equipment, every country has its own way of doing things and, more important, making things. 

Adding Barbara to our staff allows us to cast a wider net in order to bring you knowledgeable and experienced reporting from these important markets. She has covered the manufacturing industry since completing her studies in linguistics and mechanical engineering in 2005. She started covering European manufacturing as editor with one of Germany’s leading industrial trade magazines.

Two years later, she joined the Australian Manufacturing Technology magazine as editor-in-chief. Upon returning to Europe in 2013, she has been an editor-in-chief for Vogel Business Media. She has written extensively about emerging technologies and their application in SMEs throughout Europe and Australia.

I have had the pleasure of seeing her work at numerous events, trade shows, open houses and plant visits. She is very good at what she does and brings a perspective to Production Machining readers as only a native European can.
