W. Amsler Equipment Inc., an Ontario-based manufacturer of all-electric, reheat stretch-blow molding machines, has set its sights on expansion to the south, with the appointment of a Chicago-area sales firm to manage its sales and marketing in the U.S. and the Caribbean.

The company has named Tom Schneider and Bill O’Day of Chicago-based GMK Advisors Inc. GMK was formerly the sales representative for Mag-Plastic Machinery, based in Vouvry, Switzerland, a manufacturer of stretch-blow molding machinery. In September, Mag-Plastic announced that it will no longer manufacture stretch-blow molding machinery.

“We’re excited about joining forces with one of the industry’s leading machine sales representatives to help position us for future growth; the appointment is a key part of our aggressive growth strategy in the U.S.,” said company president Werner Amsler. Teaming up with GMK will also provide continuity for existing Mag-Plastic equipment customers.” According to Amsler, the company’s blow molders are designed to be compatible with molds currently running on Mag-Plastic machines.

Founded by Amsler in 1994, W. Amsler Equipment Inc. is headquartered in Richmond Hill, Ont. In addition to reheat stretch-blow molding machines and auxiliary equipment for production of PET plastic containers, the company also supplies complete turnkey blow bolding plants, filtration, and filling lines.
