Husky's Technical Centre in Brazil During its World Tour 2013.
As part of a world tour to showcase its technology directly to customers in the USA, South America, Europe and Asia, Canadian injection moulding machine maker Husky presented its technology in Brazil as part of a beverage packaging conference at its technical centre in São Paolo. According to the press release, more than 130 business leaders representing over 70 different companies gathered together.
The one-day event included networking opportunities and presentations from Husky and industry experts. The event kicked off with a presentation from John Galt, Husky’s President and CEO, emphasising the company’s commitment to supporting customers in South America and addressing what future developments the industry can expect to see from Husky.
“We are diligently working, both independently and with our customers, to develop a more sophisticated understanding of waste and how it affects the total cost to produce,” said Galt. “The competitiveness of today’s packaging market demands thinking about manufacturing solutions beyond simply output per capital. This event was a great opportunity to connect with customers to share the various tools we offer to improve their operations, from the application level to factory planning, as well as get their insights into what they need to be more competitive.”
The Husky World Tour 2013 is a series of global customer events taking place throughout the year in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. With multiple local events spanning the globe, Husky says that the tour will give current and prospective customers 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. Several events are being held throughout the month of June, including a hot runners conference in Chicago, USA.
