A group with significant experience in the development of the Canadian hot-runner industry has launched a new company, Mold Hotrunner Solutions Inc. According to president Harald Schmidt, MHS has developed a business plan to crack the international market by designing and building special custom engineered hot runner systems for all sizes of injection molded parts.
MHS, based in Georgetown, ON, began to take shape early this year when Schmidt, his partner Danilo Kozulic, and a group of former employees at a large hot runner manufacturer convened to discuss a start-up. The group, which comprised a central core of manufacturing and design experience, had opted to cut ties with their employer when the company restructured and shut down Canadian manufacturing operations. The core staff of the fledgling company has been hard at work since spring commercializing the technology and product line to take to the market. The result is a hot-runner system that will be sold under the trade name Rheo-Pro.
"We have developed a new generation of hot runner technology that will handle everything from micro-molding to large automotive parts," says Schmidt.
