​This month, Barbara Schulz, based in Germany, joined the Modern Machine Shop team as our first European correspondent. But while Barbara is new to us, she’s not new to the industry.

Barbara started covering the manufacturing industry as an editor with Germany’s leading industrial magazine, MM Maschinenmarkt, after completing her studies in linguistics and mechanical engineering in 2005. Two years later, she moved to the other side of the world and became editor-in-chief of Australian Manufacturing Technology magazine, which is published by the Australian Manufacturing Technology Institute Limited (AMTIL). Being part of a national manufacturing association enabled her to network with Australia’s top players in metal manufacturing as well as small- to medium-sized manufacturing businesses. Barbara returned to Germany in 2013 and has been editor-in-chief of European Tool and Mould Making (ETMM), published by Vogel Business Media, for the past four years. 

Barbara will enable us to present perspective relative to European machining trends, technology and tactics. We’re happy to have her on board.
