About Us


MAGNATTACK™ Global is a family-owned and operated company specialising in the design and manufacture of magnetic separation equipment for the food processing industry. The company has had valuable first-hand experience in the field since 1969, when it began as WJB Engineering.

Our manufacturing facility and Global Headquarters is located in NSW, Australia, while our US Headquarters is situated in Chicago, IL. MAGNATTACK™ equipment is also available through our distributor network.


The majority of MAGNATTACK™ equipment solutions are a direct result of issues experienced by clients with existing technology. The MAGNATTACK™ Research & Development Team was able to work with the customer to create solutions that met their requirement, and consequently, the requirements of many other food processing companies.

This solution-based equipment range evolves and grows over time, in order to address current customer requirements and meet industry standards. Ongoing research is continuously conducted by our team — a proactive approach to ensure we are able to understand and address our customers needs to the highest level possible.

All applications are individually assessed before recommendations are given and equipment is made to suit. MAGNATTACK™ equipment is predominately manufactured with proprietary RE80™ magnet circuit technology, which ensures magnet strength life and separation efficiency is maintained for many years. RE80™ is the guarantee that our equipment does not contain inferior lower cost rare earth magnets.

All MAGNATTACK™ equipment is fully-manufactured in Australia.
