Adrian Coleman’s appointment as Technical Director for all Bunting’s European operations follows nearly six years as the General Manager of Bunting-Redditch.  Adrian became General Manager when the Bunting Group acquired Master Magnets, where he had been Managing Director since 2007.  In the newly created role, Adrian is applying over 30 years of experience to the development and design of a wide range of magnetic technology.  This includes magnetic separation equipment and magnet assemblies.

Adrian is replaced as the General Manager of Bunting-Redditch by Alison Flower.  Alison joined Master Magnets in 2007 after a distinguished career in material handling with General Kinematics.  After Bunting’s acquisition in 2017, Alison moved from technical sales to assume the position of Customer Services Manager.  In July 2022, Alison was appointed Production Manager before being promoted to General Manager of Bunting-Redditch in January 2023.

Bunting-Berkhamsted also announced changes with the promotion of David Hocking to the position of General Manager just over a year after being appointed Operations Manager.  David has held a range of customer facing, purchasing and quality roles since joining Bunting in 2012.  As Operations Manager, David oversaw modernisation and reorganisation of the shop floor to adapt to an increase in industrial magnetiser projects and to improve production efficiency.
