Summit plans automation systems magazine

Published on .

Chicago--In a period when most b-to-b publishing companies are scaling back, Summit Publishing Co. announced Monday that it is launching a new publication, Automation World.

The monthly magazine, which will debut in June, is aimed at users and sellers of automation systems and components.

David Harvey, former publisher of Reed Business Information’s Control Engineering, will be VP-publisher of the new magazine, which will compete directly with his former publication.

Also jumping to Automation World from Control Engineering are Jane Gerold, who will be editorial director, and Gary Mintchell, who will be editor.

Summit Publishing also publishes Packaging World.
