Husky Wraps up 2014 World Tour

Husky Injection Molding Systems wrapped up its 2014 Husky World Tour with two events in November – a Specialty Closures Conference in Bangkok, Thailand and a Beverage Packaging Conference in Casablanca, Morocco. Both events were well attended, with 70 customers from South-East Asia attending the Specialty Closures event in Bangkok, and over 50 customers attending the Beverage Packaging conference in Casablanca. Both events featured insightful presentations, engaging discussions, and the opportunity to network with industry experts.

The Specialty Closures Conference in Bangkok highlighted Husky’s scalable, flexible specialty closure solutions, and offered presentations from Husky, Schöttli, and industry experts, including Craig Wellman from Wellman Packaging Australia, Hughes Hebert from MMC Packaging, and Mark Thomson from Keller & Heckman LLP. Topics of interest included "Planning for automation in part design – improving part quality and uptime"; "Packaging trends and specialty closures"; and "Food industry regulations and the impact on closure part design".

The Beverage Packaging Conference in Casablanca looked at industry trends and provided insights on how Husky solutions reduce variability, improve part quality and increase productivity in the beverage packaging industry. Presentations included "Latest innovations in PET packaging", from Bertrand Cottard, Business Development Manager – Blowing and Packaging, Sidel Group; "Revolutionary technology developments in PET Preform Manufacturing" from Aurelien Bastien, Director PET System and Tooling EMEA & SAARC, Husky; and "Market trends in Beverage Packaging" from Thomas Lanher, Market Manager MEA, Husky. Customers were also introduced to Husky’s new PET multi-layer barrier solution.

“This event demonstrated our commitment to the growth of our customers in North and West Africa,” said Wassim Labban, Vice President South East Europe, Middle East, Africa and SAARC for Husky. “Our audience for this event came from more than 7 different countries in Africa and Europe, highlighting the increasing importance of both emerging African companies and mature European ones to find a common platform of collaborative opportunities."

The Husky World Tour 2014 was a series of global customer events taking place throughout the year, in various locations across the globe. With multiple events spanning multiple locations, the tour gave both current and prospective customers opportunities for more direct access to Husky’s latest technologies at a local level, while providing targeted solutions to help customers reduce variability, improve part cost and increase productivity. Planning for Husky World Tour events in 2015 is already underway.
