MPI: Setting Industry Standards for Over 30 Years
Highland, MI (August 26, 2013) – When Keith Rhodes founded Magnetic Products, Inc. (MPI) in 1981, in southeastern Michigan, it was with specific values in mind: Leadership, integrity, quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction. Over 30 years later, this is truer than ever. We have proudly set the industry standard for magnet separator design and performance, and today offer the best magnetic conveying, automation, metal detection, and material handling equipment systems in the business.
Mr. Rhodes had worked in the field of magnetics for many years, and he envisioned a company that would advance the development of permanent magnet technology while engendering research and development. The company was also established to focus on customer education, allowing users to better select and maintain their equipment. These cornerstone principles still guide our company, and our management team.
MPI’s first goal was to improve the performance of permanent magnetic separators, and within five years, dramatic equipment design changes had been achieved. Through our engineering and development, easy-to-clean manually operated permanent magnetic and self-cleaning automatic permanent magnetic separators are now common worldwide. As we have grown, our focus on product development and improvement has remained, and we’ve expanded while keeping our core mission and values.
With a detailed customer knowledge and focus, a worldwide customer base, and high internal quality standards, our capabilities include engineering, customer testing, research and development, manufacturing, and sales and marketing. Customers in food processing, pharmaceuticals, plastics, metal processing, recycling, and so much more rely on our true industry-leading expertise.
MPI is a proud partner of Material Process Equipment (MPE), a systems integrator that specializes in magnetic separation, metal detection, and X-ray, and material handling systems. MPE seeks strategic partners who adhere to best-in-class practices and demonstrated the ability to build strong relationships and exceed customer expectations.
MPI fosters a culture in which each employee truly cares about the innovative work being done, and it shows. We are now a worldwide provider of the most advanced magnetic and non-magnetic material handling solutions, and we will continue to grow and advance in the years ahead.
