About Us

The Bunting-Redditch manufacturing facility in the UK (previously known as Master Magnets) is part of Bunting.  The company specialises in the design, manufacture and supply of Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors.  Originally established in 1978, the Redditch facility has developed a global reputation as a leading supplier to industries including Mining, Mineral Processing, Recycling, and Ceramics. Bunting acquired Master Magnets in January 2017.

Magnetic Separators are used to separate ferrous and magnetic materials from non-magnetic products.  This includes the recovery of aluminium cans with Eddy Current Separators, upgrading of non-metallic minerals with Rare Earth Roll Separators, and removing steel rebar from crushed demolition waste with Overband Magnets.

The range of Metal Detectors originate from the well-known and long-standing Metal Detection brand.  Metal Detectors identify metal contamination and are used widely in the quarrying, mining, food, recycling, and plastics industries.

To provide the best possible customer service, the Bunting-Redditch team based in the UK is supported by agents and representatives located across the globe.  Customers are provided with a complete service that includes site evaluations and product sample testing, equipment recommendations and commissioning.

The Bunting Redditch Facility

Bunting’s Redditch manufacturing facility is equipped with heavy cranes, specialist welding bays, and a large paint shop.  With decades of experience, the manufacturing team fabricate and build a wide range of equipment.  This includes complex large Metal Separation Systems and 10-tonne Electro Overband Magnets.  Manufacturing is supported by a knowledgeable engineering and sales team, also based on site at Redditch.

In 2019, Bunting invested in a state-of-the-art Recycling Test Facility to compliment the Minerals Test Laboratory.  Customers are able to take or send samples of materials to Redditch to test and confirm separation performance.
