Bunting® Magnetics Co., Newton, Kan., hired Andrew Blubaugh as product manager for its metal detection line. Blubaugh will manage the growth and profitability of the company’s line of metal detection products by supporting the company’s sales team, identifying new markets and customers, improving the product and enhancing the accompanying service and warranty programs.
“Andrew will be a great addition to the Bunting family,” says Rod Henricks, director of sales, Bunting Magnetics. “His background in industrial sales and product development, including the agricultural sector, will help strengthen our metal detection portfolio of products, while his manufacturing experience will support our efforts on the operational side.”
Blubaugh draws on ten years of experience in manufacturing. Recently, he was the production manager in charge of sales and operations at Kincaid Equipment, a manufacturer of agricultural equipment for the seed research industry.
“I am looking forward to using my previous industrial manufacturing experience to help power the Bunting brand further in metal detection and build upon their well-established sales and product strategy. With a wide array of metal detection products that can fit into several industries including food, plastics, recycling and textiles, the opportunity for continued growth is tremendous,” Blubaugh says.
