Bunting Magnetics Expands Metal Detection Service Department

October 28, 2009
Bunting Magnetics Co., headquartered in Newton, KS, has announced the addition of David Briggs and Clint Pitts as new service technicians for its Metal Detection Department.

“We are rapidly expanding our service capabilities to provide constant technical support for customers,” said Rod Henricks, Bunting product manager – metal detection. “Manufacturing operations can not afford to shut down production lines. Our service team helps our customers remain productive by either providing solutions quickly over the phone or by being on-site in a rapid manner to solve any issues. Both David and Clint will be able to help Bunting increase our service commitment to our customers.”

Both Briggs, a staff sergeant in the United States Army, and Pitts, a petty officer - first class in the United States Navy, bring an extensive avionics and electrical engineering background to their roles. In his last role, Briggs was maintenance supervisor at Fort Hood in Texas and managed the maintenance for 24 Longbow Apache helicopters. This included the supervision of 25 maintenance personnel, workflow management, and quality control for the flight line operations of that fleet of helicopters. During his time in the Army, Briggs had tours of duty in both Korea and Iraq.

Pitts has both commercial and military experience that he brings to the company. He recently worked as an aviation maintenance manager at both Aerotek Aviation and Cessna Aircraft, based in Wichita, Kansas. Prior to that, he served 10 years in the United States Navy in Aviations maintenance with a focus on electrical, instrument, and power systems. During his service time, Pitts directed the daily operations for the electronics shop aboard the USS Enterprise.
