Shields Company to Provide G.M Latin America with Magnetic Sweepers
Shields Company Magnetics, a division of Ventura, CA based Shields Company Inc, the nations leading manufacturer of industrial magnetic sweepers, will supply General Motor's Latin American manufacturing operations with magnetic sweepers.
VENTURA, Calif., March 11, 2013 -- Under the terms of the order, Shields Magnetics will manufacture and provide General Motors of Latin America manufacturing facilities an unspecified number of magnetic sweepers for use in debris removal.
According to Shields President Charlie Shields, "Given the fact that we are essentially the only U.S. manufacturer of the magnetic sweeper, it would make sense that G.M come to us". "Nearly all of the magnetic sweepers sold in the states originate in Asia, the quality is horrible". "The Shields Type ALT™ magnetic sweeper is the most advanced magnetic sweeper made in the world, our customer base demands this". "Shields Company has a vast dealer network and sells to a wide variety of industries, they all require a U.S. made magnetic sweeper or industrial magnet". "Our reputation is dependent on quality and durability, something that only a U.S. made item can offer".
Shields Magnetics designs, manufactures and distributes industrial magnets, magnetic safety equipment and magnetic sweepers for companies and governments throughout the world.
