Robert Bunting is following in the footsteps of his grandfather and father with his appointment as Bunting’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

Bunting is one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of magnetic separators, metal detectors, materials handling, magnetic printing cylinders, magnets, magnet assemblies, and magnetising equipment.  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; and Ningbo, China.

Robert is succeeding his father, Bob Bunting, in overseeing the continued growth of the global Bunting group. Bob Bunting assumes the position of Chairman.

Founded in 1959 by Walter F. Bunting in Chicago, Illinois, the company has remained family-owned and family-operated ever since.  Walter’s son, Bob Bunting, served as president of the company since 1993 and oversaw an international expansion of the company.  Over the 29-years as president and CEO, Bob oversaw a three-fold increase in sales.  Robert Bunting’s appointment as president and CEO continues the family legacy.

Robert Bunting joined Bunting  in 2007.  Before joining Bunting, he had earned a degree in business management at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri, USA and gained valuable experience during two years as an Internal Sales Coordinator at Sun Life Financial.

“Bunting’s position as a successful, well-respected global business is due to the tireless work of my grandfather and father,” explained Robert.  “Despite being located on different continents, the Bunting Group is one company and all our incredible employees are fundamental to our success.  We have developed established strategic global partnerships with suppliers and customers, which I aim to support and expand.  I am both excited and honoured to be entrusted with taking the company forward as president and CEO.”
