Hunter Automated Machinery Corp. and Maus USA Inc. have completed an agreement whereby Hunter’s sales and service network will represent the Maus product line in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. The agreement was announced by Hunter president Bill Hunter and Maus general manager Roberto Sammartin at CastExpo 2010.
