Pit & Quarry’s redesign roadmap

By |  March 22, 2016

pq-old-and-new-150It’s been a long time coming and a lot of work to make happen, but the new Pit & Quarry is here. From the front cover to the Looking Back page (now called A Look Back), our brand has a brand-new look.

And the look is not all that has changed. Based on your valuable feedback, we’ve made content updates, as well, and following is a kind of roadmap to help you find your way.

Contents: Your most detailed roadmap is the monthly Contents section, which we’ve expanded to two pages.

News: The latest news, as always, is posted on our website, social media sites and in our weekly enewsletter. You told us you still want news in the magazine, and we have it. Up to Speed, near the front of the book, brings you up to speed on the most important happenings. Equipment- and manufacturer-related news is in the P&Q Tech Update section. Economics news, including David Chereb’s monthly Aggregates Forecast, the P&Q Aggregates Industry Index and expanded Stocks box, are in the new P&Q Business Update section. And when there is news to bring you from the Mine Safety & Health Administration (MSHA), it’s in the new Safety Update.

New products: Brand New has also been redesigned and expanded, and is now called Cutting Edge. There, we keep you in the know on the latest equipment innovations for the aggregates industry.

Feature stories: Feature stories are the heart of the magazine, and each will now reside in one of the magazine’s main
sections – technology, business or safety – depending on its focus.

Columnists: Mike Heenan’s monthly column is better than ever and now called MSHA & the Law. It’s in the safety section. In addition to David Chereb’s column, the business section is the home, each quarter, to George Reddin’s Market Insights.

Archive photos: You’ve told us Looking Back is one of your favorite pages in the magazine. We’ve tweaked the name to A Look Back, and, on occasion, we will also run A Look Ahead, with concept drawings and details of new technologies on the horizon.

You’ll get to know the new design well in the coming months. For 100 years, Pit & Quarry magazine has brought you news and information on equipment and technology. Our redesign kicks off the next 100 years for Pit & Quarry – a new look for the magazine, website, enewsletter, social media, events … the entire brand.
