Launch of new manufacturing publication ‘MADE in Ireland’

Earlier this year, it was announced by MA Business that a new publication ‘MADE in Ireland’ will be created to reflect and promote the success story that is Ireland’s engineering sector. On 24th September, the first issue of the magazine was launched, reporting and exploiting the manufacturing and design of Ireland, and in turn offering companies a factual resource that positively reflects their market so they can continue to grow as a manufacturing nation.

With more than 6,000 manufacturing organisations, and 200,000 professionals in Ireland, it was recognised that the Irish needed a resource about the country’s growing manufacturing sector- and that’s exactly what the team at MA Business has achieved.

Commenting on the new launch, Publishing Director Luke Webster said, “This is an exciting step for our growing manufacturing and engineering portfolio. There’s clearly and appetite for high quality, technically led content in Ireland, with a drive to innovate and increase manufacturing exports. MADE in Ireland will promote the great manufacturing and R&D work taking place in Ireland. The content will focus on providing manufacturers with the expertise and support that will enable them to design, develop and manufacture better products.”

The new website www.madein.ie is now live. Readers can subscribe to access content via a monthly e-newsletter and bi-monthly print and digital edition.
