Bunting announces two appointments including new Master Rep for Western Canada
Bunting has contracted Chris Heming (shown below with Bob Bunting) to serve as the new Master Rep for Western Canada, and recently appointed Josh Ewertz to lead the company's Metal Stamping and Metalworking Division (shown above).
"I am very pleased to be an official partner with Bunting for Western Canada," said Heming. "We have used Bunting for client solutions in metal separation, product inspection, and material handling for almost ten years and have always been extremely satisfied with both the product, the service and the company.
"It is a natural progression to formalize this relationship," continued Heming, who is the co-owner of the Canadian Copacking Group (CPG)/CPG Automation, as well as the co-founder of Farsight AI. His brother, Kevin Heming, also works at CPG, and will be supporting Chris Heming with his Bunting sales outreach. CPG Automation provides integration and technology deployment to industries across Canada, and has service in Vancouver, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, and Toronto. CPG also provides extensive consulting services.
To continue Bunting's strategic plan of export growth, Heming will be representing all standard Bunting products within the Western provinces of Canada. Products include material handling, magnetic separation, and metal detection equipment. According to Bunting, he will be calling on all traditional industry segments, including food, grain milling, plastics processing, recycling, metalworking, and more. Bunting added that they are very excited to work with Chris Heming and utilize his vast experiences with the company's customers in Canada.
"Chris has been a manufacturer's representative for Bunting for a number of years, and we are glad he made the decision to become an exclusive Master Rep," said Rod Henricks, Director of Sales at Bunting. "He brings a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge to our company, and I look forward to working more closely with Chris in his new role."
In June 2019, Bunting's 60th anniversary year, Josh Ewertz was also hired as Bunting's new Industry Manager for the company's metal stamping and metalworking industry group.
"At Bunting, our greatest strength is our ability to approach complex applications and develop customized solutions to serve our customers," said Ewertz. "Our equipment is robust and high quality, and we pride ourselves on the fact that we provide long lasting, permanent solutions.
"We are supported by territory managers located across North America that are able to go out to a customer's site and personally assess their application in order to provide them with the best possible equipment recommendations," he continued. "From there, we can engage our engineering team to create a custom designed product, as well as offer the services of our new Customer Experience Center, which allows potential customers to test their product with our equipment in real time and see real results before making any commitment to purchase."
Bunting offers a complete line of permanent magnetic conveyors and conveyor components for the metalworking and metal stamping industries, as well as conveyors to handle virtually any type of scrap. In 2019, Bunting celebrated 60 years in the business.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
