Sterling, Vir.-based hot runner control supplier Gammaflux L.P. has announced that it will no longer sell its hot runner temperature controllers through Bolton, Ont.-based Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd. The announcement comes nearly a month after Husky purchased the Manufacturing Solutions Division from Framingham, Mass.-based Moldflow Corporation.
“With their recent acquisition of Moldflow’s Manufacturing Solutions Unit, which includes the former MSI brand of hot runner temperature controllers, Husky has decided to bring hot runner temperature controller production in-house,” said Gammaflux LP president David Huntting in a statement today. “This means the long-running Gammaflux/Husky OEM relationship in coming to an end.”
According to Huntting, Husky has sold thousands of Gammaflux’s hot runner temperature controllers for over 20 years. The controllers were “private labeled” with Husky’s name, but were manufactured and often serviced by Gammaflux.
Despite the change, Huntting noted that Gammaflux would continue to service all Husky accounts that are currently using a Gammaflux brand controller.
“Our service engineers will work to ensure Husky users are getting optimum performance from their Gammaflux products,” said Huntting.
