On 3 August 2019, Bunting Magnetics Co. will celebrate its 60th anniversary. The company is an industry leader in the design, manufacture, and sale of magnetic equipment that is used in applications such as magnetic separation, metal detection, conveyor systems, and magnetic printing cylinders.

Founded in 1959 by Walter F. Bunting in Chicago, Illinois, the company has remained family-owned and operated. Walter’s son, Bob Bunting, serves as the company’s current president, and his son, Robert Bunting Jr, serves as the general manager of the magnet materials division.

Currently, Bunting Magnetics Co. is headquartered in Newton, Kansas, with manufacturing and distribution facilities across England and the US. This has allowed the company to reach a wide range of customers and gain a reputation as a global magnetic company.

The company’s products address unique challenges across a variety of different industries. They also allow conditions to be overcome that would otherwise prevent companies from achieving the highest level of quality in their operations. It aims to create a product that will solve exact problems. Considerations when developing the equipment include the types of materials that will be handled, the operating conditions of the facility, and providing operators within the facility with equipment that is safe, simple to use, and low maintenance. All of the company’s products are custom-designed by its in-house engineering team, working to determine each customers’ exact needs and develop a product that will suit the challenges of a customer’s particular industry and the materials that they handle, as well as being designed to fit within the existing layout of the customer’s facility.

The company is awaiting the industry challenges that the new decade will bring and is looking forward to expanding its reach globally in the field of magnetic innovation. It has extended its thanks to all of its employees, who have supported the company throughout its 60 years, and anticipates more years of success and growth in the future.

“I think it is very exciting that we have been able to achieve 60 years in business as a private, family owned company,” said Bob Bunting. “It speaks well to the dedication of our employees and the Bunting family as a whole.”

“60 years is a huge milestone that a lot of companies never make it to,” said Robert Bunting. “We have an incredible employee base and it is incredible to reflect on all of the hard work that has been done over the years – it really speaks to the legacy of the company.”
