At RPM MAGAZINE we are committed to being part of prevention rather than spread of the Coronavirus.
This crisis, in some way, will have an affect on everything from our work and family lives, to the food we eat and, of course, what we do as a hobby. It will impact our industry manufacturers and retailers, the blue collar and white collar workforce and may place financial stress on many aspects of our economy. It is with this in mind that we at RPM MAG have developed a strong action plan to ensure we do our part.
It is our goal to deliver RPM MAGAZINE the same way we have been for the past 21 years, without compromise in quality or service. We are a family company. Our staff and advertisers have families that depend on them and we are committed to their safety and survival.
Through the unprecedented 2008 economic crash and subsequent recession, by working together with our staff, advertisers, supporters and readers, our families, businesses and our love of all things horsepower survived, and this crisis too will pass.
With this in mind, all RPM staff will be respecting personal distancing in their work activities as well as working from home to help do their part.
Given the fact that RPM relies on third party printing and distribution systems that have been affected by the worldwide efforts to control COVID-19, we will hold production of our RPM May issue. This move will allow both the companies that provide services to RPM and our valued advertisers to regroup and emerge stronger. Our April issue, which is in distribution now, should be arriving as usual.
What does this mean for subscribers? RPM readers, both print and digital, will simply miss the May 2020 issue and in lieu of this their subscription will be extended by one month.
We wish to once again thank all of our readers and advertisers for making RPM the world’s top independent car mag! As we make our way through this obstacle in the road be sure to visit us at www.rpmmag.com for newly enhanced online content that will help you stay in touch with the wild world of horsepower.
We will be monitoring the situation as it unfolds. Be strong and stay safe.
