Husky Further Expands Hot Runners and Controllers Business
Husky Injection Molding Systems continues to make significant investments to support the strong growth of its Hot Runners and Controllers customers. Husky established its hot runners and controllers business as a strategic priority early in 2013 and is focused on developing innovative products and services that solve customers’ key injection molding challenges in areas such as gate quality, balance, ease of use and maintainability.
Specific investments in 2014 include expanding Husky’s facility in Pudong, China with new manufacturing equipment and new team members, and commencing hot runner manufacturing at its Chennai, India facility. This will allow Husky to achieve industry-leading lead times in Asia, and benefit customers around the world by streamlining the workload at its other manufacturing facilities in Milton, Vermont and Dudelange, Luxembourg.
In the next 12 months, investments in the business will include increasing capacity to manufacture hot half plates, and introducing new, more efficient manufacturing technology for manifolds at its Luxembourg facility. To better support customers with fast delivery needs or special technical requirements, Husky is also expanding its custom components manufacturing capacity with state of the art equipment and skilled machinists. A new generation of engineering automation is also being put into place that will greatly improve collaborative engineering with customers. Hand in hand with capital investments, Husky has added more people to its sales support and customer service teams to give customers better support on mold and part design consulting, resin trials, start-up assistance and field troubleshooting.
