On August 3rd, 2019, Bunting Magnetics Co. celebrated its 60th anniversary as a company. Founded in 1959 by Walter F. Bunting in Chicago, Illinois, the company has remained family-owned and family-operated ever since. Walter’s son, Robert “Bob” J. 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 exciting to see current and former employees get together to celebrate all of the hard work that’s been done over the years—it really speaks to the legacy of the company.”

To celebrate the 60th anniversary, Bunting Magnetics Co. decided to take a major step regarding the rebranding of the company and its acquisitions. As of August 3, 2019, Bunting Magnetics Co. and all of its associated properties will be known as “Bunting” exclusively. Along with the trade name change, a new corporate logo was developed. The decision to rebrand was made with the goal of uniting the five divisions and two e-commerce sites associated with the Bunting brand all under one name, eliminating confusion for customers and establishing the Bunting brand as a world force. We hope that when people hear the name Bunting, they will immediately think of the company dedicated to providing the best customer service and highest quality magnetic equipment in the industry.

As Bunting moves forward into the 2020s, the company eagerly awaits the industry challenges that the new decade will bring. Bunting is looking forward to expanding its reach within the United States as well as growing as a global force for magnetic innovation. Bunting 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.
