An Organization Open to Change

While it offers the stability of a small business, Dexter Magnetic Technologies welcomes change. Starting in 1951 as a fabricator of permanent magnets, the company has reinvented itself several times and now designs and manufactures innovative – often patented – complex magnetic devices and finished products. These products provide cost-effective solutions in a variety of challenging environments and applications such as oil drilling assemblies at the bottom of the sea, diagnostic and genetic testing instruments, semiconductor and data storage processing equipment while meeting the stringent product demands of aerospace and military applications.

Dexter Magnetic Technologies welcomes and seeks your new ideas, whether to improve an existing product design or simply to increase efficiency.

The Best of Both Worlds: Continuity and Change

At Dexter, you can rely on colleagues who have a deep understanding of the business acquired over a long career with the company. You will also work with people from other companies who have recently joined us and who provide broad experience with the most up to date methods in their field. Dexter Magnetic Technologies embraces both in the pursuit of extraordinary results.

The Pleasures of Working for a Successful Company

One of the many benefits of working for a growing and profitable company is the opportunity for professional growth. Equally important, the company takes rational risks to invest in its future, which will fuel sustainable growth.
