We were delighted to receive several updates from German publisher Huethig, which has been busy extending its digital offering, as well as saying goodbye, and welcoming new members to its editorial team.

Editorial Updates

Huethig has welcomed Petra Gottwald to the team, as the new Editor-in-Chief of trade journal productronic. Petra joined the team earlier this year, replacing Marisa Robles who has moved on to a new job in the industry. Petra is an engineer, with more than a decade of experience in print and online publishing, and has a background in textile technology and mechanical engineering.

The publishing house has also recently said goodbye to Hans Jaschinski, who retired as Editor-in-Chief of elektronik industrie at the beginning of July this year. Hans has handed over his role to Alfred Vollmer, who has been working alongside Hans for the last few years and will now be responsible for the trade publication, with support from the editorial team.

We look forward to seeing the direction Petra, and Alfred take the publications in, and we wish the best of luck to Hans in his retirement.

Digital Versions Available of all Huethig Publications

As the COVID-19 pandemic hit the globe, Huethig launched digital versions of their publications including AUTOMOBIL-ELEKTRONIK, elektronik industrie, elektronik journal, emobility tec, IEE and productronic, which have been available to readers since March 2020.

With no requirement to register online for access to the magazines; here at Napier, we think it was great that Huethig were able to act so quickly, and were able to deliver a digital option to their readership from the beginning of lockdown.

Launch of All-Electronics.de App

Huethig has also shared news of the launch of its all-electronics app. Available on both IOS and Andriod, the app has been designed as a digital extension to the all-electronics.de portal.

The app allows readers to access Huethig’s digital magazine archive and features a search function with bookmarks as well as the opportunity to access videos, images and audio files. The user is able to download the magazine to read offline, and moving forward editorial articles in the magazines will be able to present further information via a page scan, which will provide direct access to other websites, PDF documents and videos.
