About Us

At Manufacturing in Focus, we take great pride in delivering a comprehensive view of the manufacturing industry. We keep our readers up to date on the latest news and events in the industry, as well as highlighting the nation’s leading manufacturing, automation and distribution companies. We conduct in-depth, one-on-one interviews with top representatives in these businesses, delving beneath the surface to uncover the true stories of their successes in the field.

In our pages you will also find informative features on the most prominent organizations, institutes, associations, and government departments whose actions and policies have a direct impact on the manufacturing industry. We profile the latest in automation and technology, and take a closer look at the re-shoring efforts happening across North America.

We sit down with Managers, Founders, CEOs, and government officials to get at the heart of the story. And through our competitive and comprehensive advertising scheme, we can get your story out as well.
