“Husky has a strong and talented management team that has successfully grown the business to be an iconic Canadian manufacturer and global leader in injection molding equipment. We are delighted to work with them in the next phase of the company’s growth,” said Anthony Munk, managing director at Onex. “We see a number of opportunities to grow the business from Husky’s leadership position in this industry.”

“I am pleased that shareholders overwhelmingly approved the arrangement for Onex to acquire Husky,” said John Galt, president and CEO of Bolton, Ont.-based Husky. “I would like to thank them for their support over the years and now look forward to partnering with Onex to execute our strategic plan and continue to grow the business.”
