Bunting employee returns to run Americas sales team

Chicago-based Tony Rampino has been named as new director of sales for the Americas at Bunting Magnetic, a US-based manufacturer of printing cylinders used in the beverage can industry.

Rampino, who has 13 years experience overseeing sales and marketing teams in various manufacturing industries, returns to Bunting after working there between 2002 and 2008.

He will be working with Bunting’s network of territory managers, inside sales and customer service personnel.

“Knowing what works and what doesn’t work is key to solving most challenging applications in today’s processing and recycling industries,” said Rampino. “That’s where the experience of Bunting comes into play.  Bunting has been solving customer challenges through the use of magnetic technology and related equipment since 1959.”

The company has also appointed Mark Friesen as incoming global marketing director. Friesen will take on the role when Michael Wilks retires in March 2024, following a 23-year career with Bunting covering roles including global marketing director, sales director, general manager, and product manager of printing products.

In October, Bunting Magnetic opened its 12,000 sqft Manufacturing Centre for Magnetic Decorator Cylinders in Newton, Kansas.
