Rick Bigham has been named as the new product manager – magnetic separation for Bunting Magnetics Co., headquartered in Newton, Kansas. 

“The magnetic separation product line is historically our largest in terms of sales and overall importance to the company,” Robert J. Bunting, the company’s owner and chief executive officer said. “Having someone with the experience and background of Rick will ensure that we keep being an innovator in this field and maintain our standing as the industry leader.”

Bigham has more than 27 years of experience in the automotive, industrial gas, magnetic products, and petroleum industries. He served in sales management roles for both Dresser Industries, based in Houston, and Cullum & Brown, based in Wichita, Kansas, before joining Bunting as international sales manager in 2000. Prior to assuming his new role, he worked as a product manager for LS Industries based in Wichita, Kansas.

In his new role, Bigham will be responsible for an extensive line of magnetic separation equipment that removes ferrous contaminants from dry particulates, liquids, and slurries. Bunting offers everything from basic cartridges, grates, and plate magnets to magnet housings, self-cleaning separators, pulleys, and drums. The company’s separators work individually or in tandem to remove ferrous metal debris from gravity, mechanical, or pneumatic conveying systems. Bigham will have responsibility for the worldwide sales effort for this product line as well as all new product development.
