Husky Injection Molding Systems recently announced that the company plans to expand its presence in the region with a new facility in Chennai.
The primary focus of the company's new 5700 square meter Chennai facility is mold conversion as well as mold and hot runner refurbishment for local preform manufacturers. The Chennai site also includes a Technical Center, which provides a venue for Husky to work with customers to demonstrate and configure solutions to meet their requirements. With the opening of this facility, Husky has also expanded its engineering capacity for hot runners and preforms in order to handle increased demand from customers in the SAARC countries. This means reduced lead times and faster time to market which is a significant competitive advantage for these customers.
Finally, as part of its ongoing commitment to providing the most responsive service and support in the industry, the new Chennai facility features a local supply of spare parts to offer Indian customers rapid service and minimize downtime.
