As announced at CastExpo 2010, just concluded in Orlando, Florida last week, Maus USA INC. (Virginia Beach, Virginia) has signed an agreement with Hunter Automated Machinery Corporation (Schaumburg, Illinois) to represent the Maus line of grinding machines and related equipment to the foundry markets in the U.S., Canada and Australia, effective immediately.
Maus, headquartered in Padua, Italy, is a major supplier to the world foundry market for automated cleaning room grinding and riser cutoff machinery, as well as automated work cells and complete transfer lines. The U.S. operation of Maus is based in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Hunter Automated Machinery is likewise a longtime leading supplier to the foundry market, having pioneered automated matchplate molding machinery for green sand foundries . Today, through various affiliate licenses and representative agreements, Hunter also brings a broad line of automated matchplate molding, mold handling, core shooters, green sand plants and machinery as well as sand testing equipment to foundries worldwide. Hunter operates facilities in the U.S., Brazil and China.
For Maus, Hunter will provide sales and service representation, as well as perform grinding tests on castings and machine utilization studies for metalcasters, with an initial Maus grinding machine from the industry standard-setting SAM line installed in the Hunter headquarters near Chicago. Maus will continue to supply technical assistance, application engineering and replacement parts support from its existing Virginia Beach tech center.
According to Sandra Selwan, marketing manager for Maus in Italy, “We see great potential in this agreement, as our machines will now be represented by a name known to foundries worldwide. Coupled with our machine quality and innovative engineering, Maus believes the synergy between our company and Hunter will produce substantial mutual benefit.” Ms. Selwan made these comments from the CastExpo, where both companies were exhibiting their machinery and engineering capabilities to metalcasters from every corner of the world.
