EDITOR'S MEMO: Exciting Times

ASI has long been your go-to source for the latest and greatest in the world of adhesives and sealants. From industry news to feature articles and case studies, ASI has always focused on providing superior information to help our readers succeed in their businesses.

We’ve recently made some changes to our editorial staff that will expand our capabilities and broaden our scope. I will be serving as Editor-in-Chief, Integrated Media and Teresa McPherson will take the post of Managing Editor. (We will be filling these roles for Ceramic Industry, ASI’s sister publication, as well.) In addition to editorial oversight, my focus will be on pursuing new opportunities in a variety of platforms. Please contact Teresa ( with your price increases, company news, personnel announcements and new product releases. We will also be hiring a new Associate Editor to handle our e-newsletter, among other duties. More details to come as that post is filled. We’re excited about the opportunities that this new structure will enable us to pursue.

We’re not the only ones who are optimistic about the future. According to the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates’ (SOCMA) 2009 Business Outlook Survey, 90% of respondents believe their business will see a sales increase this year. How refreshing! After an extended period of financial turmoil and grim expectations, signs are finally pointing to the beginning of the end for the economic recession.

As you focus on taking advantage of improving economic conditions to expand your business, ASI will continue to investigate new and innovative methods of bringing you the information you need to succeed. If you have any comments or suggestions for us, please don’t hesitate to contact me at (330) 336-4098 or I look forward to hearing from you!
