Meet the experts behind AMI Magazines

AMI Plastics launched its market- focused digital magazines for the global plastics industry nearly fi ve years ago. Our aim is to deliver the highest quality and most relevant technical informa- tion and industry analysis. In order to achieve this, we have assembled one of the most experienced and technically qualifi ed teams in the plastics magazine sector.

Technically qualifi ed – Unlike most plastics magazine editors and journal- ists, all of our editors have a relevant science or engineering degree. They also have extensive experience of covering the plastics industry, each having spent at least 20 years in this market. Expert support – Our three editors

are backed up by a highly experienced team of regular contributors, plus the

expertise of the AMI Consulting team. No other plastics magazine has direct in-house access to this level of interna- tional industry knowledge and under- standing.

Meet us in Düsseldorf – Our team will be at the K 2013 exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany in October. Meet us on the AMI Magazine stand in the North Entrance (EN03).
