A Fond Farewell
Though we will produce no additional new articles or materials, all of the existing content on our website will remain available through the end of the year.
As you may have already heard, May 2019 will be the last issue of Ceramic Industry. While our staff is deeply committed to the industry and helping you all succeed in your businesses, market conditions unfortunately are just not sufficient to support our continued publication.
Though we will produce no additional new articles or materials, all of the existing content on our website at www.ceramicindustry.com will remain available through the end of the year. I urge you to download any favorite articles or reference materials via the relevant digital editions. And, of course, do continue to use the various directories and advertising vehicles to source the equipment and materials you need for your business.
On a personal note, I joined the editorial team of Ceramic Industry a little over 20 years ago. It simultaneously feels like it’s been eons and the blink of an eye. In many ways, the magazine has shaped me as much as I’ve shaped it. The ceramic industry has not had an easy time of it over the past couple of decades, but I have loved watching it find its way over the years, identifying challenges and often expanding in new directions. I’ve loved building strong relationships with so many of you, relating details about your new technologies and processes, and cheering your successes and achievements. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for letting us share your stories.
Well, you all know I love a good quote. I came across this anonymous one-liner recently: “Service is nothing but love in work clothes.” I know I can speak for our entire staff when I say it has been an honor to be of service to this industry. I, for one, have loved every second of it.
