This July, along with the Indian economic state getting reformed by GST, the other major transformation taking place is in the structure of the IPF July Edition. Apart from the portrayal of 'Special Section' as 'FOCUS' and the introduction of IPF Plus encapsulating the Industry 4.0, Industrial News Briefs, Government Policies Sphere, buyline, tender etc., there has been format changes made, in the content and indexes for reader's convenience. Another important development is the 'Editor's Note' thereby introducing a virtual vis-a-vis amid the reader and IPF editor. This issue's FOCUS topics are Construction-Earthmoving/Mining Equipment and Material Handling Equipments. This edition covers articles, interviews, features, revolving around Material Handling sector(including Logistics & Warehousing) and 7-8 per cent of GDP holder Heavy Equipment industry. There is also a special coverage of the INTEC 2017 exhibition held in Coimbatore of which IPF was also a part as an exhibitor. Thus the July edition holds a lot to share and will prove to be an amalgamation of Implementation, Progression, and Facilitation.
Industrial Products Finder (IPF), a pioneer industrial journal in India, was launched in 1972. It gives industrial manufacturers and exclusive dealers/importers of industrial products a forum to display their ware, in a medium that was to be made regularly available to the users of these products. IPF focuses on all industrial/engineering products and services, consultancies, repair and reconditioning services, industrial security and safety services, and of late, pollution control and environment protection services. Apart from products, there are also other regular features that complement the core activity – a capsule of important events and developments in the industrial sector, news on companies, projects, joint ventures and mergers, etc; a selection of articles written by experts in the field as well as academics; and information on all important trade fairs, conferences, seminars and training programmers.
