ELMSFORD, NY — Magnetic Analysis Corp. promoted Dudley M. Boden to president and chief executive officer.

Having spent 15 years as MAC’s vice president of sales and marketing, Boden brings an in-depth understanding of the company’s test systems and customer inspection needs. He is now focused on broadening the firm’s product offering in order to take advantage of new opportunities that have arisen.

“Boden’s work in expanding overseas operations and strengthening the sales force and office procedures is providing a firm basis for future successful initiatives under his leadership”, comments MAC Chairman William S. Gould.

“As a company, the concept at MAC is that we are more than just an equipment manufacturer," Boden said. “To make NDT work you need both equipment and people. Combining these two things is our forte. We partner with the customer to figure out what their real needs are and what the right equipment is for their application. Then we work with them to configure the test system and make it work in a way that is suitable and beneficial for them."

Boden believes the key to the company’s success and what distinguishes it from other NDT companies in the field, is superior customer service which they are able to provide through a staff of experienced and highly knowledgeable field engineers and representatives. Prior to joining MAC, Boden was a director and general manager of Minolta Corporation’s Instrument Systems Division. While there, he was responsible for production and sales of quality control equipment. He holds a degree in photographic science and instrumentation from the Rochester Institute of Technology.

MAC specializes in ultrasonic, eddy current, electromagnetic, and flux leakage systems for testing wire, parts, tube and bar during the production process. The company has been designing and manufacturing nondestructive test systems for the metals industry since 1928 and is currently based in Elmsford, NY, with additional manufacturing plants in Boardman, OH and Östersund, Sweden.
