In April, family run business Andel Plastics, which had been investing in new machinery, was featured on this website, but we had no idea that it was the ‘parent’ of Maxmag Moulded Magnets Limited.
It has been a long term project and commitment of engineer Barrie Flowers, the founder, to have an improved building so that both businesses could be accommodated under one roof and Maxmag has now joined Andel on the Kings Road Tyseley site.
The company has over ninety years’ experience in applied magnetics and has been at the forefront of injection moulded magnet technology for over 30 years. Components are manufactured in commodity plastics and engineering polymers.
Their magnets, isotropic or anisotropic, are manufactured in Birmingham in the UK – not ‘shipped in and shipped on’.
Their website explains: “Isotropic magnets have magnetic properties equal in any direction. Anisotropic magnets have a superior performance in some preferred direction or pattern. They are usually three to four times as strong magnetically as isotropic magnets. Most Maxmag magnets are anisotropic. Their technology enables them to maximise the magnetic strength in the desired direction by orientating the magnet material during the moulding operation”.
The magnets are used in a wide range of industrial sectors, including:
- flow monitoring,
- industrial lifting.
Maxmag has achieved an enviable reputation for its products and services with worldwide sales and representation.
We wish them well.
