Welcome to the inaugural installment of this new column in FORGE. It will be dedicated to the financial issues facing manufacturing businesses, providing guidance on financial matters to those who may not have a dedicated CFO on staff and providing additional financial insight to those who do.
As was reported in this column in October 2019, the National Safety Council reports that Americans became more likely to die from an accidental opioid overdose than from a motor vehicle crash at some point during the past three years.
I would like to say first, to our readers, advertisers, contributors and partners, THANK YOU! As the new group publisher for the Thermal Processing Group at BNP Media, I’m looking forward to continuing to build on our longstanding brands.
