Previous Page

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Rutherfordton, NC - Finishing Talk, a popular online forum, news source and social network for the metal finishing community, announced today its acquisition of the former Southern Metal Finishing newsletter. Southern Metal Finishing was a monthly newsletter sent out to metal finishers in the South East and abroad, and was the same company that hosts the annual Southern Metal Finishing Conference in Charleston, SC. Finishing Talk plans on re-branding the newsletter as the Finishing Talk Newsletter, and expanding its circulation nationwide.

Finishing Talk plans to extend the length of the newsletter by adding four additional pages. Along with professional articles and editorials, the publication will feature content derived from its very own website forums. As Paul Fisher, Administrator for explains, "The newsletter will interact with forum members, and vice versa. When a member posts something of considerable interest to the community, we may include their post in the newsletter that month. This way, a wider audience can read the ideas and opinions of other members in the industry, then turn around and respond, critique, or discuss the topic right on our forums. Who knows, maybe their response will show up in a subsequent issue!"

The first issue of Finishing Talk will be available in early 2008. The company suggests that any firm or individual in the industry that wishes to submit a press release, editorial, article, event or other newsworthy information for publication in the newsletter should post their content on the Finishing Talk forum at
