Husky Injection Molding Systems has begun construction on its new hot runner manufacturing facility in Chennai, India.
Intended to support what Husky calls its growing hot runner business in the region, the 35,520-square-foot facility will have sales, customer support and manufacturing and sourcing teams, and will provide local hot runner and mold refurbishing.
“This region has great potential for future growth and investment here will allow us to provide an expanded offering to our customers,” said John Galt, president and CEO of the Bolton, Ont.-based company. “Our goal is to be a leader in servicing this market. Opening a new facility in Chennai will allow us to better meet the local needs of current and future customers.”
Expected to be finished within the year, the Chennai plant joins a growing list of Husky’s overseas facilities. These include the opening of a larger technical centre in Yokohama, Japan, expansion of the technical centre in Shanghai, China and the establishment of a new PET and hot runner refurbishing centre in Moscow, Russia.
