As North America’s oldest industrial magnet manufacturer, we are excited to announce that Walker Magnetics has been acquired by Industrial Magnetics, Inc.!

Our goal has always been to provide the very best magnetic solutions for our customers. Now that we’re joining the IMI family, we look forward to accomplishing a larger vision – one that we think we can better achieve with Industrial Magnetics.

According to Dennis O’Leary, Industrial Magnetics’ Chief Business Development Officer, “The acquisition of Walker Magnetics marks Industrial Magnetics’ next step in expanding our permanent, electromagnetic and electro-permanent magnetic technology and systems for industrial applications.

With strong brand recognition and highly complementary products, we are excited about the opportunities to grow both businesses while maintaining our industry-best lead time, reliability, and quality. Industrial Magnetics intends to be a thoughtful steward to the Walker Magnetics legacy, history, and brand with continued investment in its long-term growth.”

Both Industrial Magnetics and Walker Magnetics share a passion for solving customers’ needs and we could not be more excited about what the future holds!
