Bunting Magnetics Europe has expanded its facility in Redditch, UK. The site now includes a customer experience centre, while increasing the floor space of both the manufacturing area and offices by 50%.  

Bunting’s European division started its renovation 12 months ago. ‘Despite delays and challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we now have a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, which is already providing the additional space needed to fulfil the growth in orders,’ says Simon Ayling, the company’s managing director.

The new customer experience centre – which is 300% larger than the previous testing area – is home to a ‘state-of-the-art laboratory’ and is claimed to be one of the most advanced for magnetic and electrostatic separation in the world. Companies processing and mining minerals, and recycling waste materials, can send samples to the laboratory for controlled tests. 

The customer experience centre features designated areas for both wet and dry testing on both high-intensity magnetic separators and electrostatic separators. This latest investment in Bunting’s European laboratory facilities follows the creation of a Recycling Test Centre in February 2018.

‘The facility expansion ensures we are able to meet the growing demand for our separators,’ Ayling states.  ‘We have a facility that accurately reflects our position as a global force in material separation technology.’
