Husky puts customers first with World Tour 2013
BOLTON, Ontario - Husky Injection Molding Systems today announced the kick-off of the Husky World Tour 2013, a new series of global customer events that will take place throughout the year in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. With multiple local customer events spanning the globe, the Husky World Tour 2013 is a first-of-its-kind for the injection molding industry, giving current and prospective customers more direct access to Husky’s latest technologies at a local level. The tour will support Husky’s increasing focus on providing targeted solutions to help customers in its core markets reduce variability, improve part cost and increase productivity.
“We are excited about the Husky World Tour 2013 because it will give us a number of ongoing opportunities to showcase our technologies directly to customers throughout the year, while creating a platform for richer, more focused customer interactions,” said Jeff MacDonald, Husky’s Vice President of Marketing. “In 2012, key industry tradeshows played an important role in helping launch our biggest products and will continue to play a role for us. Having a number of product launches in 2013, this new approach will allow us to introduce our latest technologies as soon as they’re ready.”
The Husky World Tour 2013 will build upon the success the company has had with hosting focused, local customer events over the past two years. Tour events will include presentations and technical demonstrations from Husky and industry experts, along with networking opportunities for attendees. Serving as Husky’s primary method to introduce innovations to the industry for 2013, each tour event will be tailored to customers’ specific market and regional needs. To provide dedicated focus on this new approach, the company will forego its participation in tradeshows for 2013, including Drinktec and K2013, both held in Germany at the end of the year.
Husky kicked off the tour last week with a Beverage Packaging Day in Korea that was attended by more than 100 existing and prospective customers who learned about the latest trends and innovations in beverage and closure manufacturing from Husky and industry experts. This will be followed shortly by a Specialty Closures Day in Europe, a Beverage Packaging Day in Latin America and additional tour events throughout the year for customers in the beverage packaging, food packaging, closures, medical and hot runner markets.
