W. Amsler: Wins CPIA Award
The Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) has named W. Amsler Equipment Inc., a leading Canadian manufacturer of all-electric, reheat stretch-blow molding machines based in Richmond Hill, Ont., as the recipient of its Plastics Innovator Award. The award honors companies who have contributed to the expansion of the Canadian plastics industry through the advancement of technology. The award was presented at CPIA’s annual general meeting and the 2010 Plastics Industry awards event on June 3 at the Toronto Congress Centre.
CPIA noted that in 2009 W. Amsler unveiled several innovative technologies including a fully automatic loading system for wide mouth preforms up to 89 mm, a new flexible PET machine series that allows for adjustable cavitations on PET blow machines, and a modular semi-automatic palletizer that provides fully automatic operation through the purchase of additional modules.
Swiss-born Werner Amsler started out in plastics in 1970 as a mold maker with the former Premier Plastics in Toronto and later worked for Bekum Plastics Machinery. In 1994, Amsler started W. Amsler Equipment to focus on fully-electric machines instead of standard hydraulic presses.
