Magnus Products, LLC
Magnus Products, LLC was founded in July 2011 by Rich Morris and Rob Watt while investigating processing methods for the refining of previously stockpiled iron and steel fines, created in the iron breaking and slag processing world. Armed with a small induction furnace and some specialized separation gear in a small industrial warehouse, the first Magnus process was developed.
The process evolved with a focus on producing high-quality iron chips through a cold process and then branched into research and development of non-metallic construction products and processes.
This work continues with the optimization and operation of our first production unit, currently operating in Gary, IN. A second production facility opened in Middletown, OH in 2015. Continuous improvement (in all key areas of our business) and exceeding customer product expectations are at the core of our operating philosophy.
Mr. Morris holds a BS Metallurgical Engineering (The Ohio State University) with executive manufacturing management experience with AK Steel, Allegheny-Ludlum, LTV/ISG, Hydraulic Technologies, Inc., and Sims Metal Management. He currently serves as the CEO and President for Magnus Products, LLC.
Mr. Watt is a manufacturing professional with a BS Organizational Management (Purdue University). He has led several key production initiatives for Sims Metal Management with a specialty in applied separation technologies. He currently serves as the COO and EVP for Magnus Products, LLC.
