Former Director of Hunter-Europe Paolo Nazari, PhD has been named Managing Director – International, and former Director of Hunter do Brasil Eng Gustavo Debona has been named Director – South America.
According to company President & CEO William G. Hunter, “Paolo and Gustavo have been instrumental in enhancing and expanding our global presence. These promotions recognize their contributions to our company, as well as helping to affirm its future direction.”
The opportunity to deepen customer support and consolidate its European presence prompted Hunter to open a sales and engineering facility in Legnano (Milan) Italy, when Dr. Nazari began with the company in April 2011. As Managing Director – International he is responsible for directing and managing sales, and operations (including Hunter’s sales agent network) in Europe, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries, plus Africa and the Middle East, as well as South America.

Hunter Foundry Machinery Corporation was established in 1964 as Hunter Automated Machinery Corporation with the invention of the world’s first gravity-filled automated matchplate molding machine. This began the company’s history of innovation and launched the foundry industry into a new industrial revolution. Pioneered by William “Al” Hunter in his home garage, the original HMP-10 machine streamlined the laborious metal casting process by offering foundries unimagined new capabilities by producing as many molds in one hour as most had previously been produced in an entire day. As industry demands grew, Hunter responded with advanced solutions such as automated mold handling equipment and coresetters.
Now in its 50th year, Hunter Foundry Machinery Corporation’s inventions have earned nearly 150 U.S. and international patents. Hunter has produced more than 1,800 molding machines and mold handling systems for customers around the world. The company’s global reach extends from offices in the U.S., Brazil, China, India and Italy through North American, South American and Asia-Pacific manufacturing sites. Hunter’s sales and technical support is underscored by its $12 million parts inventory, established to maintain each machine’s original production capability across the worldwide foundry market.
