Founded in 1959 by Walter F. Bunting in Chicago, the company has remained family-owned and family-operated ever since. Walter’s son, Bob Bunting, serves as the current president of the company, and Bob’s son, Robert Bunting Jr., serves as the general manager of the magnet materials division. Both father and son expressed great enthusiasm for the 60th anniversary of the company.
“I think it’s very exciting that we’ve been able to achieve 60 years in business as a private, family owned company. It speaks very well to the dedication of our employees and the Bunting family as a whole,” said President Bob Bunting.
“60 years is a huge milestone that a lot of companies never make it to,” added his son, Robert. “We have a truly incredible employee base, and it’s incredible to reflect on all of the hard work that’s been done over the years—it really speaks to the legacy of the company.”
Currently, Bunting Magnetics Co. is headquartered in Newton, KS, with manufacturing and distribution facilities in Berkhamsted, England; DuBois, PA; Elk Grove Village, IL; Newton, KS; and Redditch, England. This strong presence both at home and abroad has allowed the company to reach a wide range of customers and gain a reputation as a global magnetic force.
Bunting Magnetics Co. eagerly awaits the industry challenges that the new decade will bring and is looking forward to expanding its reach globally in the field of magnetic innovation. Bunting Magnetics Co. thanks all of its employees who have supported the company throughout its 60 years of success, and anticipates many more years of continued success and growth in the future.
