Modern Materials Handling and Other Supply Chain Group Titles Purchased by Peerless Media

Last week’s sendoff (click here) to Modern Materials Handling was luckily a little premature. Modern and three other Reed publications will remain in business without interruption.

After Reed Elsevier announced April 16 it was shutting down a staggering 23 titles published under its Reed Business Information U.S. division, it was generally expected that at least some of those would be snapped back up in the 11th hour from former employees.
