Bunting Magnetics Appoints European Sales Director

September 9, 2009
Charles Collier has been appointed sales director for the European operations for Bunting Magnetics Co., which is headquartered in Newton, KS. Collier will have dual responsibilities to drive the sales strategy for both Bunting Magnetics and Magnet Applications Ltd (MAL), which Bunting purchased in April, 2008 and is based in Berkhamsted, England.

“I am proud to be entrusted with the task of launching Bunting Magnetics into Europe,” said Collier. “By building on the 50 years of experience and history of the company, I believe that the Bunting product range of magnetic detection, separation, and material handling products will quickly find its rightful place in the rapidly developing European market. In addition, the Magnet Applications product line, which has an impressive range of magnetic products along with new value added products, will continue to grow in the European market.”

Collier brings extensive sales experience to his new role primarily with a manufacturing background. This includes time spent in operational and consultancy positions. In the past, he has served as a consultant to MAL. During this time, he assisted MAL with the expansion and improvement of its supply chain partnerships. Collier will be based out of the MAL headquarters in Berkhamsted.

“The addition of Charles as our sales director for Europe is a natural progression stemming from our purchase last year of Magnet Applications,” said Robert J. Bunting, the company’s owner and chief executive officer. “Charles has over 30 years of industrial sales experience including over 20 years with magnetics. His background will be instrumental as we continue to expand our sales in the continent of Europe. Also, his leadership skills will help as we quickly add more personnel in this area.”

Bunting Magnetics Co. is a major U.S.-based manufacturer of magnetic assemblies and equipment. The company’s product line serves global markets and includes a broad range of magnetic materials and components, magnetic separation systems, material handling equipment, magnetic printing cylinders, flexible dies, and metal detection equipment.
