Husky Acquires Mold Maker Schöttli
Husky Injection Molding Systems, Bolton, Ontario/Canada, has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Schöttli Group of Diessenhofen, Switzerland, recognized as a global leader in medical and closure mold making. The sale is expected to close in early December.
Schöttli is a global leader in a number of select medical applications, such as syringes, infusion/transfusion products, diagnostic systems and feminine care items. Husky hot runner customers will benefit from product improvements based on strengthened knowledge, and existing Schöttli customers will have more streamlined access to Husky’s hot runner, controller and injection molding machine products. In addition, Schöttli’s closures business complements Husky’s existing closures business by providing additional technology and capacity in both established and growing markets.
Following the close of this transaction, Schöttli’s headquarters in Diessenhofen, Switzerland, as well as other facilities in San Dimas, California and Suzhou, China, will become part of Husky’s global network of locations.
