You'll notice a few minor changes in the print version of MDM this issue, as well as some upcoming changes online, in an effort to make our information services more user-friendly. This column, which has been on the front page of the yellow section for a few years, will now appear on this page.
This Perspective column is often either related to the cover story or about broader distribution-related issues, so page 2 of our print edition is a more logical place for it to live than in the Industrial &Construction Markets Update yellow section. This page also gives us more space to explore issues than the single-column format in place for the past 40 years. More space also gives us some flexibility to address, when warranted, more than one topic.
