ABOUT US

At Manufacturing in Focus, we take great pride in delivering a comprehensive view of the manufacturing industry, month after month.

Our online editions keep you on top of the latest news and events across multiple industries, and highlight the nation’s leaders in their respective fields. By sitting down with Managers, Founders, Directors, and CEOs, we are able to bring the stories of their success to you.

With a focus on growth, opportunities and education, we also take a balanced and in-depth view of challenges facing North American businesses at large, and speak with representatives of the country’s most prominent associations, trade bodies, and government departments, keeping an eye on the policies, events, and issues that affect us all.

With an emphasis on learning from top North American firms and a clear view of the entire business landscape, we truly bring North American manufacturing into focus.

The Modern Advantage

 
 
MIFWebCircleTemp.png
 

Manufacturing in Focus is published both as an online magazine and a high quality printed hard copy. By publishing online we are able to extend readership beyond simply a one-month cycle by keeping our articles online and Google indexed for a minimum of two years. We never hide our content behind a subscription paywall, so our clients and readers can easily access and share content. We also partner with other publishing and distribution platforms, including Issuu and Magzter, to reach the widest possible audience.

We also work closely with our content partners to create a stand-alone document, with a front and back cover, for clients to share or print locally for their own promotion independently from the full edition of the magazine.

With today's audience gravitating more and more towards consuming content online and through mobile and digital devices, our growth strategy and focus of distribution is connected closely to that medium.  What separates us from most of our competitors is that we still believe in providing a quality printed product to ensure a wholistic approach to distribution and subscriptions. We print and distribute a full gloss printed edition every month, and provide a complimentary copy to each of our valued advertisers and feature companies.

Important Collaborations

 
Conexpo Thumb.png

CONEXPO

In February 2017, Focus Media Group became media partners of CONEXPO – CON/AGG. As one of North America’s premier construction events, CONEXPO – CON/AGG boasts some 2,800 exhibitors over a 2.5m square foot arena. In February, we spoke with organizers, AEM, about their goals for this year's show. Throughout the proceeding months, we featured a selection of the most exciting exhibitor stories.

LiUNACoverThumb.png

LiUNA

When Focus Media Group wanted a major industry body to launch our new magazine, Construction in Focus, we turned to the most progressive, fastest-growing construction union in North America. Through our discussions with LiUNA’s leaders we are able to gain a better understanding of the construction industry through their 12 million workers and accurately report back to our loyal subscribers.

AGC NYS Thumb.png

AGC NYS

Focus Media is proud of our ongoing relationship with the AGC, the leading Construction Trade Association in the US, representing 26,000 member companies. In recent years, we have spoken to CEOs/Presidents/Board Members of various AGC State Chapters, including AGC NYS (New York State), AGC Georgia, AGC Houston and AGC of Minnesota, to get their thought and views on key issues affecting their members and the wider industry as a whole.

 

Giving Back

Manufacturing in Focus is firmly committed to providing complimentary exposure for Associations, Unions, and Conventions in the sectors we represent. We value the thought leadership that comes with the responsibility of running those organizations and want to ensure our magazine is strongly linked to their agenda. 

We also sponsor a number of charity and non-profit organizations by giving them free full page ad placements, appearing alongside our other industry leading clients. It is important that we show the full picture of industries we serve, not just the largest economic presence.

 

Environmental Accountability

Environmental accountability is important to us, as it is for many of the businesses we represent. At Manufacturing in Focus we work to minimize our carbon footprint in all areas as we grow. By focusing on subscriber growth digitally, we reduce environmental impact not only by using less paper and ink, but by dramatically reducing the environmental cost of logistics involved in distribution.

We are also committed to a paperless environment and focus on digital platforms to organize and manage our business.  Some of these capabilities include Sharepoint servers for document management, digital signatures for document signing, email contracts, fax to email services, electronic invoices and receipts.

We encourage our content partners to download and distribute their marketing brochures electronically and educate them on how to reach a broad audience leveraging social media, email campaigns, and their own websites or blogs.
