About Process Industry Informer

We LOVE everything about process.
The evolving advancement in technology, learning how manufacturers overcome the challenges they face, the success stories we hear every week, the multitude of options available to communicate with our readers, the people we work with and the great relationships we have with them.

What we do

Whether its via our industry leading process engineering magazine, our hugely popular website, our industry 1st mobile app, or weekly E-newsletter, Process Industry Informer aims to provide relevant, up-to-date information and resources to the Management/Senior Engineering Team who are responsible for the development, maintenance and purchasing for their particular processing establishment.

Where we do it

Our target audience is the manufacturing process industries that are effectively made up of the following industries;

Food & Beverage, Chemicals, Pharmaceuticals, Paper & Pulp, Power Generation, Water, Utilities, Plastic & Rubber, Ceramics/Glass/Cement, Metals & Minerals etc.

Focussing our attention on key processing functions such as:

  • Process Management
  • Process Engineering
  • Process Control & Automation
  • Drives & Motors
  • Process Measurement & Instrumentation
  • Fluids & Liquids Handling & Processing
  • Solids Handling & Processing
  • Health & Safety

20 years and still going strong

In 2014 Process Industry Informer celebrated 20 years as an independent publisher – a rare feat in todays over-saturated trade magazine market.

There are a few reasons why we are still here;

  1. Our passion, drive and commitment (also known as bloody hard work!) for providing the most informative, relevant and up-to-date news & editorial to our readers' attention.
  2. Our forward thinking and investment in what we do. Whilst many publishes are reducing their costs – or stop publishing altogether, we have upgraded our magazine, launched our own mobile app and built a brand new website.
  3. Our knowledge about the industry and relationships we have with some of the major associations, event organisers and industry experts.
  4. And our clients who recognise and appreciate the work we do, for which we are eternally grateful.
