Husky announces focused plant mandates for its Medical and Specialty Packaging Systems division
BOLTON, Ontario - Husky Injection Molding Systems today announced the decision to focus manufacturing facilities within the Medical and Specialty Packaging Systems business, ensuring a commitment to providing the highest-precision molds for our target applications. With the integration of Schӧttli and Husky, this new focus will enable Husky to provide a more responsive approach to its customers in these markets. In February, Husky announced the creation of a new Medical and Specialty Packaging business unit bringing together the capabilities of Schӧttli, Husky’s specialty mold making facilities in Austria and the Czech Republic, aftermarket tooling and services, and the HYLECTRIC® machines system platform.
“The creation of this new business unit at Husky allowed us to focus our efforts and enables our global facilities to become experts in select applications, providing a more complete, targeted solution for our customers,” said Steve Lawrynuik, Vice President of Medical and Specialty Packaging Systems at Husky. “In addition, being able to take advantage of capacity sharing between facilities means more flexible manufacturing options, ensuring we help customers get their parts to market faster.”
Focused regional plants and Aftermarket Services and Tooling assist customers with the entire lifecycle of the mold
To support the goal of being customers’ first choice for high-precision medical and specialty closure molds, Husky will leverage the expertise and capability of each of its manufacturing facilities, bringing a dedicated focus to each location. Each facility will be targeting specific applications, and provides customers the opportunity to work with a single supplier to optimize system level performance. Within the new division, existing Schӧttli sites will be focused on medical molds and systems, select packaging molds and systems, and some specialty closures. Husky’s sites in Austria and the Czech Republic will be focused on specialty closures. Each site will continue to place a strong emphasis on Aftermarket Services and Tooling to ensure customers are supported through the entire lifecycle of a product, maintaining the high-quality communication and responsiveness Husky customers expect.
“We are excited about the new focus that Husky is undertaking with the creation of the Medical and Specialty Packaging team and the targeted approach to application development and manufacturing,” said Thomas Anderegg, President of Schӧttli. “Combining sales forces and sharing facility capabilities, while offering customers enhanced expertise in our target applications, means that we are continuing to prove our excellence in the industry. This is the kind of focused service we want to provide to our customers, and the continued integration of Schӧttli and Husky enables us to leverage each other’s strengths to do just that.”
