In a move designed to beef up its hot runner and beverage packaging businesses, Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd. is making changes to its global leadership team.

The Bolton, Ont.-based company has named Gerardo Chiaia as its first president of hot runners, while Keith Carlton has been named vice president of global sales, beverage and packaging.

In a related development, Husky will establish hot runners as its own stand-alone business under Chiaia, who has been with Husky since 1994 and was president of its beverage packaging business and vice president of global sales since 2011.

Carlton is Husky’s former COO. In his new position, the company said, he will work to more closely align operations and sales activities for beverage packaging.

Finally, Husky is also creating what it calls a “dedicated team” to develop, refine and launch new products. Robert Domodossola – formerly Husky’s director of development engineering – will oversee the team as vice president, engineering and business development.
