Twelve years already since JEC Magazine took wing! Specifically targeting the composite industry, this internationally distributed magazine is at once scientific, technical, and promoter of technological innovation, making it a must for the ever-changing world of composites. Together, the magazine and the JEC Show with its venues in three different regions of the world are furthering recognition of our industry. As a devoted reader and author of technical articles, I believe that we have made good use of the publication to promote technologies and products.

JEC Composites Magazine connects all composite industry players. More importantly, it connects our industry with the
end-user segments, in a single magazine. As an organization, JEC and JEC Composites Magazine are key to enabling and
speeding up networking for our industry. Not so long ago, the composite industry, end users and the education world
moved in separate environments, but now JEC brings us all together.
JEC Composites Magazine is where momentum built up for the innovation cooperation between Chomarat and
Professor Tsai from Stanford University, to take one noteworthy example, and where such innovations are unveiled and shared.

Beginning with the very first issue of the JEC Composites Magazine, which actually still lays on my working desk, I have accompanied, contributed to and benefitted from the activities of the entire organization (starting from being a board member of JEC, over winning the innovation award in 1995, the growing trade show activities, to the high-quality magazine mixing deepest technological insights with important business news for my day-to-day business).

In my opinion, JEC Composites Magazine is unique; it successfully contributes to create a network between the various players of the composites ecosystem; it is the only journal to address business/market, technology/innovation and applied research issues in a well-balanced approach. So, I do not hesitate to strongly recommend JEC Composites magazine to my co-workers and students, and more generally to all academic researchers and industrial engineers. My congratulations for this 100th edition!

I believe that for the last few decades JEC composites magazine has greatly helped our global composite society to effectively communicate as one of the major publications. New composite technologies were made globally reachable, accessible and usable to multiple industries as well as research/education institutes.
The JEC composites magazine covers numerous and varied composites topics: Applications, Market, Feature, R&D and Technology. It also regularly reviews regional composites development, helping us understand what is going on globally: whether it’s in America, Europe, or Asia. For sure, the magazine has significantly helped our composites group at Hanyang University discover and understand new technologies and effectively interact with the industry at large. I also found the magazine very useful and an excellent reference for graduate students in their publications of journal papers and dissertation.

JEC Composites Magazine proves that the world has become smaller. When I travel and visit foreign companies, I always see JEC Composites Magazine on the table of the main executives and technicians. Also, I often see it in international presentations or being referred to in a specific debate or as an example of innovation and technology.
It was very rewarding and honourable to take part in this magazine during 12 years. Considering that the composite market still suffers from an extreme lack of information, especially in the academic field, it is vital for our expansion and development to have JEC Composites Magazine to rely on. I wish that, together with the next generations, we can keep developing this magazine that, in only 12 years of existence, has already left a legacy of knowledge, innovation and technology to the composites sector.

I congratulate JEC magazine on its 100th issue and thank JEC for providing this great source of information during the last 12 years. I’m sure the magazine has played a major role in educating more and more people about composites and their increasing number of applications, and in attracting new players to our industry.

Based on my long experience (since the 1940s) with composites, I can recommend the JEC Composites Magazine because:
- It is easy to read and understand for both beginners and experts, with attractive illustrations.
- It features timely, well-selected fresh topics, with reader-oriented editing.
- It enlightens us with knowledge and encourages networking news for everyday activities in the composite industry.

Congratulations! At the FRP Institute in India, we feel happy that the JEC Composites Magazine is going to print the 100th issue in October 2015. It is a remarkable achievement and JEC Composites Magazine information, which covers the entire spectrum of the composites industry requirements, is very useful to composites professionals around the world.

When USA Today started its distribution in 1982, it rapidly became the largest newspaper in the US. Its principal aim is to publish easy-to-understandand-to-comprehend stories. It also pioneers the extensive use of colour charts and figures.
To me, JEC Composites Magazine is assuming this role in the composite materials community. It offers short reports on a wide spectrum of information, from engineering to business, that are easy to read and comprehend. It provides actionable information for most of us. The quality of contributors, plus page design and use of colour, set this magazine apart from its competitors.

In the past 12 years, JEC Composites Magazine launched a lot of Chinese news and industrial reports to help global readers understand the local market, and interviewed many leading Chinese manufacturers and entrepreneurs to introduce them into the international market. We thank the editors of JEC Composites Magazine for their contribution to the China-Europe composites industry.

Composites Professionals who read the magazine testify

Jon MABBITT, Managing Director, Advanced Composites Group
Yea, the magazine I think is the leading magazine for the composites industry. I think the editorial features are particularly good, the content is very detailed and we like the special features that they have on a bi-monthly basis. So this is a really good magazine and the email newsletters are extremely good as well, supportive of the composites industry. I also like the fact that composites are not just fibre enforced composites, it’s the general plastics industry to broach a broader audience than just some of the typical markets for composites like aerospace and automotive.

Andrew MOSS, Chief Executive, Advanced Composites Group
Well, I know the magazine has become a central point for communication within the industry, and it is a magazine that is widely read and we get great publicity from the articles that are published and…there are businesses… and I know the industry as a whole sees it as a leading publication.

Claude CHOUET, Sales Manager, Matrasur
The magazine is more than a magazine, I think, it’s also a tool because it keeps us informed about everything happening in this field of the industry. Composites is a very wide industry involving automotive, aerospace and some more simple things… and it’s difficult to, to be aware of everything and so I think such a really… this magazine is so helpful in our day to day… to keep us informed about this wide subject.

Sébastien TAILLEMITE, Marketing Manager Europe, Cray Valley
So, regarding JEC magazine, for us it’s a good opportunity, as a global resin manufacturer, to communicate within the industry about innovations, new products, new solutions. And it’s also a good opportunity to be aware of other innovations from equipment manufacturers, other raw material manufacturers and also composite part makers. So it brings a lot of value to be in touch with the industry in both ways, communicate what we make and also learn what is new in the business.

Malcolm Forsyth, Sales Director, Scott Bader
The JEC magazine that we think is a good magazine, it’s got a lot of serious technical articles. We see it as a good way to promote some of our new products and also the services that we can provide to customers… who will look to improve the way that they perhaps run their processes. So we’d like to try and get at least two or three articles into the magazine, each year, promoting some of the new products that we are bringing to market.
And it’s always a valuable source of information, and news about the composites market and about developments with, perhaps, in the technology, or with other customers and other applications. So, we value the magazine and it’s a useful opportunity for us to promote our products.

Clara MENEFOGLIO, Marketing Manager, Mates
Yes we use it because there are good technical infos ...  and for this reason we have had some good adverts in the past and maybe we are thinking to make again some… may be small but very, very useful advert also.

Josef RENKL, Sales Director, Krauss Maffei
JEC magazine help us for ideas. Not directly for customers. We look at more ... getting views on the market. Help us not too much for the customers but for ideas and maybe what we can do in new fields.

Marie-Emmanuelle BELZUNG, Director, Masters of Linen
Do you use the magazine ?
Yes, and the magazine especially, the number 47, for us is a great tool as it does enhance the natural fibre and most of our network is actually involved and interviewed in the magazine. And we are looking for more cross-over promotion with JEC and I am sure in… very soon future we’ll have common projects.
