Husky completes acquisition of Schöttli

Canadian injection moulding machine maker Husky Injection Molding Systems has completed the acquisition of the Schöttli Group of Diessenhofen, Switzerland, a global leader in medical and closure mould making.

With this acquisition, Husky says it will gain a deeper knowledge in the select medical applications that Schöttli focuses, as well as gain the expertise to build the strongest melt delivery system in the medical market. In addition, Schöttli complements Husky’s existing closures business and will extend the company’s presence in established and emerging markets.

“By leveraging each other’s strengths, we will have the opportunity to learn and grow our medical business, as well as build upon our strong closures business so that we can continue to provide customers with the industry’s best service and most innovative technology to produce the highest quality parts,” said John Galt, Husky’s President and CEO. “Our knowledge in PET preform moulding has been gained through a detailed understanding of our customers’ needs at the tooling level. This similar approach was reflected in our purchase of KTW for closures, and now in the purchase of Schöttli for medical. We look forward to the advancements this development will bring to both our business and our customers.”

In May 2011, Husky formally acquired KTW of Waidhofen, Austria, a global leader in closure mould making. This acquisition has enabled Husky to have a global presence in the closures market and the largest supplier of injection moulding equipment for beverage closure manufacturing.
