Every day, KCI editors keep their finger on the pulse of technological developments that are relevant to professionals working with valves, control valves, actuators, stainless steels, and pumps, etc. This information is assessed, collected, evaluated and edited, ready to be disseminated to our communities. However, unlike traditional publications, the content is carefully fed into the most appropriate media channels. This enables individual community members to access exactly the type of information they need, when they need it and in the format they prefer.
In a world that is constantly in motion, KCI closely monitors trends, ideas and shifts in the market. Even before new regions or technical opportunities have fully emerged KCI is in communication with stakeholders to assess their communication and information needs. And, being independent, KCI can very quickly allocate staff and resources to convert plans into tangible products and services worldwide.
