Bunting Magnetics of Newton is launching a manufacturing and sales center in Berkhamsted, England.
The center will handle all sales in the United Kingdom, the European Union and Africa. This operation will manufacture equipment that is part of our Magnetic Separation product line.
The center is an outgrowth of Bunting's acquisition of Magnet Applications, which is based in Berkhamsted in 2008. Magnet Applications also has a plant in Dubois, Pa.
Magnet Applications makes technical bonded magnets, precision magnetic assemblies and complementary magnet products.
"By manufacturing Bunting equipment within the European Union, we will be able to build on the reputation of both companies and offer a fuller range of magnetic technology to the eastern hemisphere," said Bunting's CEO and owner Robert Bunting.
Gareth Meese has been named Export Sales Manager for Magnet Applications Limited, a division of Bunting.
