Husky concludes two successful medical-focused events in China
The Schöttli Medical Conference and MedTec tradeshow in Shanghai highlight Husky’s commitment to the medical plastics industry in the Asia-Pacific region
BOLTON,Ontario – Husky
Injection Molding Systems successfully wrapped up two major events in China
last week with a Schöttli Medical Conference, part of the company’s Husky World
Tour, and the MedTec China show, both taking place in Shanghai. The Husky World
Tour event boasted nearly 50 attendees and featured insightful presentations,
engaging discussions, and the opportunity to network with Husky and other
experts from across the industry. MedTec China allowed Husky to highlight its
precision mold-making capabilities for customers in the medical industry in
China. Husky maintains a focus on building new relationships in the medical
industry, as well as supporting customers at a local level; regional events ensure
Husky stays well-connected with the issues customers face, and provides an
opportunity to examine industry trends in-depth.
The Schöttli Medical
Conference, an event hosted by Husky via its Schöttli brand, provided insight
on how Schöttli/Husky solutions can optimize medical manufacturing performance
while mitigating risk. Presentations at the World Tour event included
information on challenges and opportunities in the medical market and their
impact on the plastics industry, as well as system-level solutions for medical
applications. Guest speakers included Russell Tew, Business Development Manager
at Borealis, who discussed Innovation in
plastics materials for medical applications, and Jack Zuo, Sales Manager
China, at Hekuma, who presented on How to
improve competitiveness through automation.
MedTec China, organized by UBM,
is the premier manufacturing sourcing event for medical device manufacturers in
China. Taking place on September 22-24 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition
and Convention Center in Shanghai, the show provided opportunities for
customers to seek out leading global design and manufacturing technology for
medical devices and featured a highly-sought out conference track, focused on
highlighting new developments in the industry. This year, the exhibition scale
increased by 30%, covering the entire upstream industry chain, and featured ten
product zones. The show boasts a regular attendance of over 10,000 visitors.
“The Husky World Tour event provided a more intimate
experience for our customers, allowing us to share our knowledge and gain a
deeper understanding of their specific needs in this region of the world. The
market in China is quite unique, and the solutions that Schöttli and Husky can
offer drive high-quality, low-risk production with the lowest total cost of
ownership,” said Johannes Strassner, Husky’s Vice President, Medical.
The Husky World Tour 2015 is a
series of global customer events taking place throughout the year, giving
customers more direct access to Husky’s technologies at a local level. This year, Husky has participated in a mix of
both traditional trade shows (including Plastindia, NPE, and CMEF) and Husky
World Tour events.
“Both of these events in China were great ways for us to
connect with local customers, and showcase our capability in the plastics
medical industry. Both the Husky World Tour event and the MedTec show were well
attended by medical professionals, offering us a great platform to showcase the
high-precision medical parts that Schöttli is known for. Schöttli, a Husky
company since 2013, exemplifies quality and reliability, and these venues
allowed us to highlight that expertise,” said Henry Zhang, Husky’s Director
of Business Development for Medical and Specialty Packaging.
