DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - EDITORIAL - Frank Atkin­son (Ad Man)

This will be my 126th is­sue of DEMM En­gi­neer­ing & Man­u­fac­tur­ing mag­a­zine, for­merly known as DEMM (Di­gest of Equip­ment Ma­te­ri­als

& Man­age­ment) to the unini­ti­ated, and af­ter 11 years it’s now time for me to move on.

I will be stay­ing within the media in­dus­try and by the time you read this I will be the new Advertising Sales Man­ager of The Shed mag­a­zine www.theshed­mag.co.nz at Ca­denza Pub­lish­ing. Many of you will know the mag­a­zine, es­pe­cially if you like to spend time de­sign­ing, build­ing or re­pair­ing projects in your shed. I’m very ex­cited about the op­por­tu­ni­ties at The Shed mag­a­zine and if you’re go­ing to Big Boys Toys (30th Oct – 1st Nov) this year, call into see us in ‘ The Shed’ hall and say hello.

I would like to thank the ad­ver­tis­ers for their most val­ued busi­ness and I trust the DEMM read­ers will con­tinue to ‘keep the wheels turn­ing’ and pro­vide them with on­go­ing busi­ness. A big ‘thumbs up’ too to the con­trib­u­tors and read­ers for their qual­i­fied in­put, in­sight and com­ment.

To the Main­te­nance Engi­neers and the MESNZ a big thank you, the long as­so­ci­a­tion has had enor­mous pos­i­tive im­pact with the read­er­ship, long may it con­tinue.

Last but not least of course, a big thank you to the team at Adrenalin Pub­lish­ing for their sup­port and hard work dur­ing my ten­ure. A great deal of ef­fort goes on be­hind the scenes with the pro­duc­tion of this mag­a­zine from con­tent to de­sign, print, cir­cu­la­tion and ad­min­is­tra­tion, again my sin­cere thanks.

My re­place­ment is a cur­rent col­league at Adrenalin, Nicki Nemeth. Nicki is very ex­pe­ri­enced in media advertising and fa­mil­iar with the en­gi­neer­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing scene, hav­ing worked for a num­ber of years with

SA Min­ing mag­a­zine in South Africa. I’m sure she can look for­ward to the amaz­ing sup­port, en­cour­age­ment and friend­ship you have all shown me over the years.
