Husky concludes first ever World Tour – global series of events allows company to connect with customers around the world
BOLTON, Ontario - Husky Injection Molding Systems has wrapped up its first ever Husky World Tour 2013, a series of customer events the company has hosted over the course of 2013 in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific. The tour was a first-of-its-kind for Husky and included more than 15 events in nine different countries that saw more than 600 companies attend.
“The Husky World Tour has given me the opportunity to engage directly with more than 300 attendees over the course of this year,” said John Galt, Husky’s President and CEO. “I was able to have meaningful discussions with customers to really understand what they are looking for from Husky as a partner, where they feel we need to improve and what we are doing well. As a company, we have committed to acting upon this feedback to further improve our ability to consistently deliver the best products and services to our customers.”
The tour has demonstrated Husky’s increasing focus on providing targeted solutions to help customers reduce their lowest total cost to produce and eliminate variability in the injection molding process. The first event was kicked off in January with a Beverage Packaging Day in Korea and the final event was a Hot Runner and Controller Conference that took place from November 19 to 20 in Milton, Vermont. Various stops on the tour included focused customer meetings, product demonstrations, customer dinners and facility tours. Events also featured presentations with speakers from different industries, as well as partners showcasing downstream equipment.
Tour events have been a central platform to demonstrate Husky’s products and services and have given customers unprecedented access to Husky technology at a local level. The recently launched HyPET® HPP5 system was first previewed at the Beverage Packaging Conference in Luxembourg. Husky’s revolutionary HyCAP™ HPP system also made its debut at events in Europe and North America. The company displayed several technologies at its Bolton event, including a complete specialty closures system, an EASYcube™ mold, and a new 96-cavity preform mold upgrade. In addition, the tour included a series of dedicated Ultra SideGate™ demonstrations that were held at customer facilities across Europe and Asia Pacific.
