Bunting® has always been about solving problems with magnetic energy for manufacturers for several industries. The company, headquartered in Newton, Kansas, has multiple locations including Bunting-Elk Grove Village; Bunting-DuBois; Bunting-Berkhamsted and Bunting-Redditch in the United Kingdom; Victoria, Australia; and Ningbo, China.

In 1979, we moved our manufacturing operations from Chicago, Illinois, to Newton, Kansas. Here, we design and manufacture magnetic separation, metal detection and material handling equipment as well as a complete line of printing cylinders. With a team of engineers using world-class, computer-aided design equipment, we can customize and develop products to fit any application or production line.

We are constantly seeking new ways magnetic products can provide the industries we serve with more efficient production, safer product and an untarnished reputation.

The Bunting family has owned and operated Bunting since it was founded in 1959 by Walter and June Bunting. The stability for this 60-year old family-owned business was celebrated on August 3, 2019 with a new look and logo. The company spans three generations of the Bunting family with a fourth generation waiting in the wings!
