I confess, I'm a news junkie. I want to be the first to know what's new and interesting in the plastics industry. I want Plastics News to break the biggest industry news.
Maybe you're a news junkie, too; I know many readers who are. But I also know many busy executives and managers who depend on Plastics News because they need to be informed and they don't have time to check a half-dozen magazines and websites to stay up to date.
What's the latest resin pricing news? The hottest acquisition? The most important technological, end-market or regulatory trend that may impact your job and your company?
We've got you covered. We have the largest team of journalists in the plastics industry, and they're all working hard to get you the best, most timely information.
You've depended on us since we started publishing weekly in print in 1989 and since we launched what's still the industry's best website for news, resin pricing and industry rankings in 1996. That's not just hype; we have the awards, and the readership statistics, to prove it. Think about the biggest news stories you've seen in your plastics career, the most thorough coverage, the best video reports. I'm confident they're all from Plastics News and PlasticsNews.com.
On May 22, you will notice something different about PlasticsNews.com that we hope will give you an incentive to subscribe, if you don't already. We are introducing a new "metered" approach to online readership that allows nonsubscribers access to a limited number of articles each week before being asked to register and/or subscribe.
If you already subscribe to Plastics News, thank you. If you don't, I hope you like what you see and join us by becoming a regular digital and/or print subscriber.
We depend on subscriptions from loyal readers to help us fulfill our mission to be the leading source of news and information for businesses in the plastics industry. We are committed to helping advance your profession and to creating exceptional content that you will be willing to pay for.
You can't afford to be uninformed in a competitive market where having accurate, up-to-date information is more than a competitive advantage. It's a cost of doing business. And it's essential for us to continue to invest heavily in the in-depth stories, videos, research and events that separate us from everyone else.
We're grateful for your readership and look forward to serving you better.
