Husky Injection Molding System Ltd. is reorganizing its hot runners, controllers and medical (HRCM) business and making leadership changes to support the strategy.
The Bolton, Ontario-based injection molding equipment supplier said Oct. 1 it has further expanded its digitalized Next Generation Operating Model (NGOM) by including the HRCM operations under the program. Husky also moved its rigid packaging operations unit under the model earlier this year.
As a result, Husky has appointed Wes Grove to chief operating officer of its NGOM program. Grove previously served as the program's vice president of operations. Going forward, Grove will be responsible for Husky's NGOM, HRCM and rigid packaging teams globally. He joined Husky in 2000.
Additionally, Husky has tapped Aurelien Bastien as president of the HRCM business. Bastien previously served as vice president of beverage packaging for China, Japan and Korea, where he helped grow Husky's business in the Asia Pacific region. Bastien joined Husky in 2004.
Stefano Mirti, former president of the HRCM business, is leaving Husky after a 24-year career with the company.
"In our quest to anticipate and exceed customer needs and to deliver the industry's best products and services faster and more efficiently, Husky is continuously evolving," Husky President and CEO John Galt said in a statement. "These recent changes not only support these goals, but they also reinforce our ongoing growth strategy aimed at delivering solutions in both mature and emerging markets that will give our customers breakthrough speed, quality and confidence in their investment."
At K 2019, Husky is in Hall 13 at Booth A61.
