PMMI Media Group will relaunch Packaging + Processing OEM as OEM magazine in January 2018. OEM magazine will be the official publication of PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. The spring edition will be distributed to PMMI members as well as nonmember companies who build packaging and processing machinery. Trade journalist Stephanie Neil will head the editorial efforts as editor in chief, overseeing the quarterly magazine and companion website.

OEM’s editorial scope will appeal to a wide range of professionals. CEOs and senior managers can learn about best practices, hiring, training and compensation. Production, operations, quality control professionals and engineers will find information on the latest components and controls, automation and machine design topics. And sales and marketing teams will learn about market research, industry reports from PMMI, plus upcoming show and event news.

"OEM will be the voice of the association, with content that reflects the range of services PMMI provides," said Editor in Chief Stephanie Neil. "From solving operational challenges to leveraging business intelligence and training for a competitive advantage, these topics will be woven into the fabric of each issue, alongside updates in areas such as machine design, automation, connectivity, components and emerging technology." As senior editor of Automation World covering batch and hybrid industries and with more than 20 years of experience as a journalist reporting on manufacturing and technology, Neil is well qualified to head the OEM editoral team, assisted by Natalie Craig, managing editor. Jim Chrzan, PMMI Media Group’s vice president of brand development, is publisher of OEM and Ricky Angel is associate publisher.

"As we move forward from Packaging + Processing OEM and honoring the legacy of PMT magazine, we are looking forward to producing the official publication of PMMI, serving members and nonmembers who build packaging, processing, material handling and converting equipment," said Publisher Jim Chrzan.

Current recipients of Packaging + Processing OEM will automatically receive OEM magazine in the spring of 2018. Nonsubscribers can sign up on the current website at
