Dr Pete Lipetzky is the new General

Manager at Magnet Applications’

US facility

“Pete brings an incredible mix of technical expertise and operational experience to this role,” stated Bunting. “That is critical at Magnet Applications because of the complex designs that we get involved in with our customers. The highly technical magnets we create using our compression bonding and injection moulding capabilities demand knowledge and precision. Pete will bring that mindset to this role.”

Previously, Dr Lipetzky served as a Professor of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at Pennsylvania State University, Rensselear Polytechnic Institute and the Technical University of Vienna. Prior to joining Magnet Applications, he served as the Director of Technology and Interim General Manager for ATI Powder Metals located in Pittsburgh, PA.

Life as we see it today would change drastically without magnets.”

Magnet Applications has been supplying industry throughout the world for over 40 years with the complete range of permanent magnet materials.
