October Wire Rope News

Note from the Editor

October is always the first issue of a new volume, and with this in mind we thought it only right to add a few new features.

To start with, we're trying out a "Company Spotlight", in this issue on page 24. Ken Forging is taking the leap as the initial feature company. This spotlight, with it's brief, yet informative review and photo is a great accompaniment to any display ad, and serves to give "double exposure" for your company. A free highlight web page for the term of the bi-monthly issue is also a bonus with this new feature. Please contact us at info@wireopennews.com for further information and affordable pricing.

Another new feature is the wire rope-themed crossword puzzle on page 72. We hope you enjoy it as much as we look forward to presenting a new puzzle each issue.

As always, please visit our website: www.wireropenews.com for further information about these new features and more! Thank you for reading Wire Rope News and Sling Technology! Don Tywoniw
