Peter Li Named President of Hunter Foundry Machinery

Peter Li

Peter J. Li has been named President of Hunter Foundry Machinery Corporation, a provider of matchplate molding and sand casting technology. The announcement was made by Chairman of Board Bill Hunter.

Li joined Hunter in 1996 as a sales engineer. He was promoted to regional sales manager Asia Pacific in 1998; in 2000 he became general manager of Hunter Shanghai; and in 2016 he was promoted to managing director, international.

Li graduated from Shanghai Jiaotong University with a Bachelor of Science in foundry engineering. He then obtained a Master of Science in mechanical engineering at Oklahoma State University. He spent three years in the Doctoral Metallurgical Program at the University of Alabama, where, by coincidence, the very first Hunter molding machine was donated for that institution's foundry education programs.

Before joining Hunter, Li worked for Presto Castings as a metallurgist in Phoenix, AZ.

Li said, "Our challenge for the future is to keep an open mind and remove restrictions on our thinking about the foundry business. The most successful companies in our industry have automated, and that bodes well for Hunter matchplate molding machinery, automated mold handling equipment and the advanced software we bring to our customers worldwide."

Hunter was founded in 1964 by Al Hunter, who pioneered the automated matchplate molding machine concept and held dozens of patents in the industry. His son Bill, the current Chairman of Board, developed numerous innovations in sand molding machine and mold handling equipment for the global foundry market.

Hunter commented, "Peter is exceptionally qualified for this position and we know he will lead Hunter into a bright and prosperous future. We have a great team of people at Hunter and, under Peter's leadership, I am certain the company will move forward in a positive direction."
