"This acquisition is all about us delivering on our mission to advocate for the growth and sustainability of the North American metal processing, forming, fabricating, and welding industries," FMA president Ed Youdell, said.
The magazine currently has about 300 print subscriptions and sells almost 200 copies on newsstands. It is also distributed for free across Canada.
Published by My Passion Media, Explore is thanking it readers for the support with a price rollback to the magazine’s 1981 rate of $10.00 a year.
Throughout the yearlong celebration, the publication will offer 25 grand prizes, an increased distribution of 35,000 copies and four free e-books including the 35 best and most beautiful hike locations and the 35 best camping locations in Canada.
From now on both publications will be printed on 100 per cent recycled paper with 85 per cent post-consumer content. The paper is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and will carry Canopy’s Ancient Forest Friendly (AFF) logo.
