Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd. has just landed a major deal in Russia, selling 12 plastics processing systems to Russian medical parts molder Pascal Medical.
In a statement, Bolton, Ont.-based Husky said that it has been working with Pascal Medical to set up its state-of-the-art facility in Dubna, Russia “with the goal of creating an industry-leading manufacturing organization, capable of replacing foreign-import medical products with premium quality domestic production.” Currently focused on disposable syringes, the company plans to expand its product range in the future to include prefilled syringes, infusion and transfusion systems, catheters, vacuum blood collection systems, and parts for epidural anesthesia, Husky said. “[We] have been involved in all aspects of the project, including the planning for a 10,000 square meter factory, syringe design development, and selection of assembling machines, clean room suppliers and even personnel.”
Construction of the facility started in July 2016; it opened and began production on September 27.
“We are thrilled to be working so closely with Pascal Medical as they complete the first stage of their project, and we look forward to continuing our partnership as they expand production lines and the range of injection molded products they offer,” said Robert Domodossola, Husky’s president of medical and specialty packaging. “As was the case for beverage packaging in Russia twenty years ago, currently there is very little local production of medical disposables.”
