Focal Point

FOCALPOINT is NEPIC’s quarterly glossy newsletter that promotes the activities of the region’s process sector and our member companies. Per issue over 17,000 copies are distributed via mailing and event distribution, electronic download – both web and e-marketing.

We don’t charge members to share good news stories within this publication, however should you wish to include a sales message, advertise or mark a milestone within your business, advertising and sponsorship opportunities are available.


Are you a new member?  The new members’ section introduces new members of the cluster to the membership and the wider process sector. New members who have joined in the last 2-3 months and not previously featured in the New Members’ section, please submit editorial to introduce your company and its products and services to our readers. Please include an image and company logo.


We’d love to hear what you have been up to and we want to share it with the NEPIC network. Your articles and images can be submitted at any point throughout the year, however we will give you a little nudge around the publication date just in case things have gotten a little hectic and the upcoming deadline passed you by.

We can’t accept sale articles but we certainly encourage articles on the following:
Success & expansion
Employee & company achievements
Stakeholder engagement
Upskilling & learning opportunities
New products & services
Best practice
Legislative issues
Fundraising & charity support


Please send editorial and images to NEPIC’s PR & Communications Manager, Louise Gwynne-Jones, via For large files, we recommend you use the free  file transfer service available via WeTransfer.
