Robbert Hoeffnagel is the editor-in-chief, Bas van den Engel is responsible for account management.
Alea Publishers Publishing Director Roeland Dobbelaer: “We are pleased to announce the launch of AutomationNL. Industrial automation is experiencing tremendous growth. Due to the disappearance of some professional journals in this field, there was actually no longer a good journal for this field in the Netherlands. We have heard from many relatives that it is experienced as a loss. We want to close that gap. For our young publishers, it also means an expansion of focus. Until now, we have primarily focused on the food world, but by transforming EVMI from a management magazine into a more technological trade magazine for the food industry, we have already moved into the industry. We emphatically want to grow further in this area. The start of AutomationNL fits into this strategy. ”
Robbert Hoeffnagel: “Today, the development of industry goes hand in hand with the development of industrial automation. Increasingly, it is industrial automation that realizes that the call to make industry faster, more efficient, safer and more sustainable is actually being realized. The development within IA is lightning fast, the market is developing positively and it creates new challenges every year and certainly also opportunities! We would like to report on that. In addition to the purely technical aspects of industrial automation, the topics of sustainability, safety and innovation are also included in our publications. We have created four permanent sections for this: Digitization, Process Technology, Production Automation and Vision & Robotics. ”
Bas van den Engel: “AutomationNL is a very nice new challenge. I already know the domain through my work in chemistry, life sciences, process technology and the laboratory market. You are increasingly seeing how industrial automation plays a significant role in the development of industry in all domains. It is my task to ensure that suppliers of industrial automation, services and products receive optimal attention in the new trade magazine AutomationNL and on the media platform of the same name. ”
The first issue has the following themes: WOTS and Process Automation and Process Instrumentation (shown 20-9). Number two focuses on process safety and flow, level, pressure & temperature (shown 1-12).
