Husky Injection Molding Systems will combine its beverage packaging division and its specialty packaging business under one new unit called rigid packaging.
The Canada-headquartered company said the move will allow it to offer a wider range of solutions and services to both consumer packaged goods brands and plastics processors.
Robert Domodossola will lead the new business. Domodossola was formerly president of Husky’s medical and specialty packaging systems unit.
Husky said that bringing the two businesses together under Domodossola’s leadership “will enable Husky to be more nimble in responding to market needs and better help its customers to be more competitive”.
John Galt, Husky CEO, said: “These are exciting times. This organisational change, along with the leadership team we’ve put in place, will help us align our sales organisation to get even closer to customers, solution their growing base of needs and become more agile in responding to the changing market environment.
“These changes also support the company’s current growth strategies of strengthening our business in developed markets, accelerating our business in developing markets, building on our strong innovation pipeline, and driving operational improvements.”
Robert Domodossola added: “I’m energised by the opportunities we see to leverage our strength and leadership position in beverage and specialty packaging. Our key focus moving forward is to build upon our success and understanding of these markets to continue developing integrated manufacturing solutions that more broadly serve our customers’ needs and support their growth initiatives.”
