Industrial Technology, a design engineering magazine, has been sold by George Bennett to Kent-based engineering publisher, The Engineering Network Ltd (TEN).

New owners for Industrial Technology magazine
Luke Webster: “We’re looking forward to taking an already excellent magazine and website to a new level.”

The sale, effective 1st September 2021, sees Industrial Technology magazine and its associated website join TEN’s other brands including MachineBuilding.net and Fastening&Bonding.net under the leadership of TEN managing director Luke Webster and publisher Mark Newby.

Commenting on the change of ownership, editor Mark Simms said: “The timing is perfect, and the new, expanded team likewise. I am delighted to be entering a welcome period of resurgence for a superb journal that I have helped build for more than 20 years!”

Luke Webster adds: “Few would argue that Mark Simms is recognised as being amongst the very best editors in the engineering design press and we’re so pleased to be working with him on Industrial Technology. We are also delighted to say that Industrial Technology sales stalwarts Mark West, David Harman, Jan Anderson and Steve Brotherton are also part of our team. We’re looking forward to taking an already excellent magazine and website to a new level.”

According to Webster plans are already in process to enhance the Industrial Technology brand by developing the magazine, website and newsletter whilst refreshing the circulation: “Publishers that recognise the new design engineering landscape where readership and online usage are concerned are the ones that will deliver the best experiences for readers, users and therefore advertisers.”
