In December 2007, the Onex Group investment firm bought Bolton, Ont.-based Husky for US$622 million. The company has received net proceeds of US$1.8 billion in the sale of Husky to Berkshire Partners and OMERS, which was announced in May 2011.

Husky is a global supplier of highly engineered systems solutions and related aftermarket services and components for the plastics injection molding equipment industry, and a leading supplier to the PET preform packaging industry. The company reported annual revenues of US$1.1 billion for 2010.
