Special to The Clinton Courier
The Hunter Engineering plant just outside of Clinton recently welcomed for the first time an international group of distributors representing more than forty nations. Hunter equipment, built in Mississippi, is exported to more than one hundred twenty countries across the globe.
During their visit, the distributors toured Hunter’s plants, met with members of Hunter’s engineering and manufacturing teams, and were treated to some Mississippi hospitality at a welcome dinner.
“We couldn’t be prouder or more delighted to welcome our valued global distributors to America…[to] have a chance to see first-hand the dedication and commitment that characterizes all our Hunter employees, and the quality and innovation they instill in all our Hunter products,” said Darcy Tallon, Hunter vice president of international sales.
The visit, held shortly before the distributors traveled on to Hunter headquarters in St. Louis for annual meetings, commemorated the company’s recent 75th anniversary, including nearly fifty years in Mississippi. The company’s local facilities do fabrication and assembly of alignment systems, wheel balancers, and the Revolution™ Tire Changer, as well as electronics manufacturing of circuit boards, cables and wire harnesses, and electronic subassemblies. Hunter also has a fabrication and assembly facility in Durant, Mississippi.
St. Louis-based Hunter Engineering Company® is the global leader in state-of-the-art wheel alignment systems, wheel balancers, brake lathes, tire changers, lift racks, autonomous inspection equipment, diagnostic scan tools and ADAS recalibration equipment.
Hunter Engineering holds more U.S. and global patents than any other organization in the industry, employing more than one hundred twenty engineers and support staff on its innovation team.
