The site will be run by editor Kate Magill, with content from reporter Sara Samora and associate editor Megan Ruggles. Frequent areas of coverage will include openings and expansions, operations, labor, technology and regulation.

“Our expansion into manufacturing is an important step in our ambitions to lead coverage of the business world,” said Edwin Lopez, managing editor for Manufacturing Dive, Supply Chain Dive and Transport Dive, in a statement. “It presents an opportunity to dig deep into the supply and demand trends that affect global production, and the various ways manufacturing executives are shaping our economy’s future.”
Manufacturing is a vital sector in the U.S. economy. In 2021 alone, manufacturing industries employed more than 12 million workers and produced nearly $5.7 trillion worth of goods. Federal estimates suggest the number is expected to grow further in the next 10 years.
