Schonstedt's own Jim Bach is the featured performer in a new "Magnetic Locating Basics" video. This eight-minute segment introduces Schonstedt's three models of Magnetic Locators: the GA-52Cx, the GA72-Cd, and the GA-92XT. Jim covers all the basics of finding underground ferrous objects large and small.
The Corporate Responsibility Officers Association (CROA) has cited Schonstedt for its commitment to global humanitarian demining. CROA calls on individuals and companies to make commitments that will change the world.
Landmines, unexploded submunitions and explosive remnants of war (ERW) all pose a serious and ongoing threat to civilians. During and after conflicts, these weapons can be found on roads, footpaths, farmers’ fields, forests, deserts, along borders, in and surrounding houses and schools, and in other places where people carry out their daily activities. They can deny access to food, water and other basic needs, and inhibit freedom of movement, thus limiting people’s ability to participate in education or access medical care. Mine and ERW contamination may also prevent the repatriation of refugees and internally displaced people, as well as hampering the delivery of humanitarian aid.

KEARNEYSVILLE - Two Jefferson County businesses have expanded from West Virginia into the international market. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, the West Virginia Export Council and the West Virginia Development Office are recognizing this accomplishment.
Debra Martin, international trade manager of the West Virginia Development Office, presented Schonstedt Instrument Company of Kearneysville and STaSIS Engineering of Summit Point with the Governor's Commendation for International Market Entry on Monday afternoon.
"I think it's great when you think about a little company in West Virginia, we just have 26 employees here in Kearneysville, and we've shipped to 85 countries around the world. About 30 percent of our business comes from outside the United States," Mark Pugh, CEO of Schonstedt Instrument Company, said.

US Ambassador to Bulgaria James Warlick has announced the successful clean-up completed with US funding of the Chelopechene munitions depot near Bulgaria's Sofia which exploded in July 2008.
Warlick, alongside Bulgarian Deputy Minister of Defense Valentin Radev, announced the successful conclusion of a massive .18 million effort funded by the United States to clean up unexploded ordnance (UXO) that infested the grounds and nearby water areas for several kilometers around the Chelopechene munitions depot following a 2008 explosion, the US Embassy in Sofia announced Wednesday in a statement.
The land the US helped to clean and the waters of the adjoining nature preserve, river, ponds, and reservoir are now restored to their original condition, the Embassy said.
Ambassador Warlick and Deputy Minister Radev toured the site on July 25, 2012, with the director of the Slovenian non-governmental organization ITF Enhancing Human Security (ITF), Dorijan Marsic, and the president of Sterling International, William Wade, the American company which was sub-contracted to complete the sub surface clearance work.
