NEWTON, Kan. -- Charles Collier has been named Sales Director for the European operations for Bunting Magnetics Co. Collier will be responsible for driving the sales strategy for Bunting Magnetics and Magnet Applications Limited, which Bunting purchased in April 2008.
“I am proud to be entrusted with the task of launching Bunting Magnetics into Europe. 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,” Collier said.
“The addition of Charles as our Sales Director for Europe is a natural progression stemming from our purchase last year of Magnet Applications,” Robert J. Bunting, the company’s owner and Chief Executive Officer said. “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 is a major U.S.-based manufacturer of magnetic assemblies and equipment.
