Companies to Focus on Metal Detectors for Forestry Industry

Highland, MI (November 15, 2011) - Magnetic Products, Inc. (MPI), a worldwide provider of both magnetic and non-magnetic material handling solutions, is pleased to announce its partnership with Tectronix Systems, Inc.

MPI, via its association with Tectronix, will manufacture, market and sell a complete line of next-generation Metal Detectors for the forestry industry.
