Machinery Movers UK, the new monthly specialist magazine dedicated to the construction & quarry plant and equipment sector, has appointed leading construction industry journalist, Aaron Morby, as editor.
Mr Morby was editor of Construction News from 2000-2007, and deputy editor from 1998-2000, having originally joined as a reporter in 1996.
Under his editorship the weekly magazine was voted International Builder Press 'Magazine of the Year' in 2000, 2002 and 2004, as well as achieving a number of other media industry plaudits.
His building and construction sector media experience covers a period in excess of 20 years and he has held positions as president of the International Building Press networking organisation and chairman of the Top 100 Contractors Breakfast Club, as well as acting as a judge for many industry award schemes.
“This is an exciting opportunity and I'm looking forward to the new challenge”, said Aaron Morby.
“With an already very strong, highly targeted and continually developing circulation base, together with its clearly focused editorial approach, Machinery Movers looks set to become the key plant & equipment publication serving the UK construction and quarrying industries.”
Brian Coogan, publisher of Machinery Movers UK, said: “We are delighted that Aaron, with his extensive construction sector experience and acknowledged reputation and respect within the industry, has taken up our invitation to edit the new UK publication.”
“The launch issue of Machinery Movers UK has been extremely well received by both readers and advertisers alike, with very favourable responses from major equipment manufacturers, plant hirers, construction contractors, quarries and other companies, as well as leading industry trade bodies.”
“As a result subscription take-up is rapidly increasing, particularly with our special introductory offer @ £25.00 for 12 issues, which is still continuing for a limited period.”
“We firmly expect the new UK monthly publication to become as successful as Machinery Movers Ireland, which has already established itself as Ireland's No1 dedicated construction & quarry equipment title,” concluded Brian Coogan.
As part of its continuing development strategy Machinery Movers UK has now opened a UK sales office, with the appointment of Birmingham-based Open Box Publishing to handle UK mainland advertising sales – apart from some existing key accounts which will continue to be serviced direct by publisher, Brian Coogan.
