For release 2009-03-30
Bolton, Ontario -- Husky Injection Molding Systems today announced that at NPE 2009 (Chicago, June 22 – 26) it will be demonstrating technologies and services that will help customers succeed in the current economy. These initiatives will be presented at Husky’s booth (16,000 sq ft) at NPE, to be located in South Hall at S36009.
“Husky is committed to helping both new and existing customers compete in today’s market by lowering their part costs, improving quality and maximizing operational efficiency,” said John Galt, Husky’s President and CEO. “We are looking forward to NPE, which will give us the opportunity to demonstrate our latest technologies and communicate how we can help customers grow and prosper over the long-term.”
Husky ended 2008 in a strong financial position. Last year marked the company’s third consecutive year of record performance, with revenues of US$1.2 billion. The company continues to invest in research and development that will enhance customer service and introduce new products.
A recent example of this is a lightweighting project Husky worked on with a leading global bottled water company. Husky helped the company achieve a 15% weight savings on one of their plastic water bottles. This reduction will save a total of 1.3 million kilograms of resin annually.
“Our goal is to help customers be more competitive by producing the best parts at the fastest cycles. We are hearing about the importance of these objectives, now more than ever,” said Carmen Lowe, Vice President, Service and Sales, North America. “At the same time, we want to show customers how taking advantage of things like lightweighting and improving operational effectiveness, which make you leaner from a competitive standpoint, can also make you greener from an environmental perspective.”
