Welcome To OEM News

American Machinist has launched an innovative newsletter that is designed to give our readers a focused view of what the largest manufacturers in the United States are doing, and alert you to programs, projects and issues that you might participate in or need to be aware of for the continued health of your business.

As a subscriber to American Machinist, we're giving you a 2-week trial subscription to this fresh look at U.S. manufacturing: OEM News.

AM OEM News assembles the communications issued by OEMs, sifts through them, and delivers them to your computer so you'll know what's happening in your market and related industries.

These communications include news stories, of course, but also encompass media alerts, press releases, webcasts, web seminars, and other forms of electronic communication that OEMS across the nation use to talk about their manufacturing agendas and ventures.

This newsletter comes to you free of charge, and it is up to you to determine whether you want to continue to receive it. So, we'll send it to you for two weeks then, after April 3rd, you have to opt in to continue to get it.

Click here to opt in: americanmachinist.com/ENewsletter/Default.aspx. It's completely free.

You can also subscribe, or encourage colleagues to subscribe, at: www.americanmachinist.com

If you do NOT want to receive OEM News, do nothing. Your trial subscription will expire on April 3rd, and you won't receive any issues after that date (unless you opt in at a later time). And, if you'd prefer to unsubscribe immediately, follow the instructions at the bottom of this e-mail.

We designed this e-newsletter to be useful! Please feel free to send feedback or suggestions to us at [email protected]
