John Blundy, a long-time plastics industry veteran, has announced his retirement scheduled for Feb. 1, 2015. He began his career in 1975 in the parts department for Husky after the company established the facility in Buffalo, NY, Bundy's hometown.
Blundy considers his beginning in sales "accidental." "I didn't see myself in sales at the time but had suggested a molding machine rebuild idea to a customer that involved a new machine sale while at the parts center," he said. This was recognized by Robert Schad, the then-president of Husky, who then offered him an opportunity as an area sales manager and moved him to Canada.
