Husky Injection Molding Systems has announced structural and organisational changes to launch dedicated business units for the medical and packaging markets. Following the recent acquisition of Schöttli, a medical and closure mould maker, the group has made the decision to concentrate more closely on the two key markets.
Steve Lawrynuik, formerly Vice President, Customer Support, will lead this new area of the business as Vice President, Medical and Packaging Systems. This new business unit will align Schöttli with Husky’s speciality mould making facilities in Austria and the Czech Republic, as well as aftermarket tooling and services, and the ‘Hylectric’ platform.
Michael Urquhart, Husky’s Vice President Global Sales will retire at the end of February. Michael joined Husky in 1980 and has held a number of senior positions in operations, marketing and sales with the group.
“I would like to thank Michael for his dedication and numerous contributions to Husky over these many years. He has helped to grow and shape the company and the legacy of his contributions will be felt long after his departure,” said John Galt, Husky’s President and CEO. “I wish Michael well in his retirement, while also congratulating Steve on his new role. The creation of a dedicated medical and specialty packaging business will allow Husky to provide greater focus on these core markets and offer customers a complete solution, including mould, machine, hot runners, controllers and aftermarket services.”
