Bunting - Redditch
Bunting 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.

Magnetics on the move. 1978 saw a new company formed with the name Master Magnets Ltd. Founded by Geoff Worley who had fifteen years experience in the magnetics industry and had specialised in magnetic separation and its derivatives. Joining Geoff as sales director was Cliff Walker; already an experienced man in magnet sales for over thirty years and with worldwide contracts.
The 1990’s saw the company installing new heavy-duty winding facilities for producing larger and heavier coils for the electro magnetic range of products and a new super strength magnetiser weighing 14 tonnes and providing unsurpassed magnetising facilities. A test laboratory was also set up during this period to test clients samples, enabling the company to supply the correct type of separator for any given application.
The late 1990’s also saw the retirement of Cliff Walker having completed 40 years in the magnet trade and having enjoyed appointing many overseas agents of which many remain with us today. The agents enabled us to enter a larger worldwide market, with agents reporting from Australia, USA and Asia.
We are now based at Redditch in Worcestershire, which is very close to strategic motorway links and served by nearby Birmingham International Airport. Since moving to the custom built site, the Redditch factory has provided Master Magnets Ltd with increased factory space with 30 tonne craneage and easier transportation of our goods.
Master Magnets Company 2003, when we moved to Redditch, We acquired IRS (Integrated Recycling Systems), providing the company with more strength in the recycling industry to complement the existing product range. In 2005 Master Magnets also acquired Metal Detection, well established in the electronic metal detector business for over 40 years. This latest acquisition gives the parent company Master Magnets an all-embracing position in the field of magnetic separation and extraction, all aspects of recycling and full coverage of metal detection applications.
The future looks bright for Master Magnets as we continue to trade world-wide. Our design and engineering departments have the knowledge and expertise to solve any application presented to us from anywhere around in the world.
