Husky Injection Molding Systems announced organisational changes to proactively realign its business to support customers in response to evolving market trends and changing consumer demands. Husky has taken the step of combining its Beverage Packaging business and Specialty Packaging business under one new consolidated business called Rigid Packaging. This change will allow the company to offer a wider range of solutions and services to both Consumer Packaged Goods brands and plastics processors.
“These are exciting times. This organisational change, along with the leadership team we’ve put in place, will help us align our sales organisation to get even closer to customers, solution their growing base of needs and become more agile in responding to the changing market environment,” said John Galt, Husky’s President and CEO. “These changes also support the company’s current growth strategies of strengthening our business in developed markets, accelerating our business in developing markets, building on our strong innovation pipeline, and driving operational improvements.”
Robert Domodossola will lead Husky’s new Rigid Packaging business. Mr. Domodossola was formerly President of Husky’s Medical and Specialty Packaging Systems business and was appointed to this position in April of 2017. Since joining Husky in 1996, he has progressed through a number of design and engineering management roles. Bringing these two businesses together under Robert’s leadership will enable Husky to be more nimble in responding to market needs and better help its customers to be more competitive.
“I’m energised by the opportunities we see to leverage our strength and leadership position in beverage and specialty packaging,” said Mr. Domodossola. “Our key focus moving forward is to build upon our success and understanding of these markets to continue developing integrated manufacturing solutions that more broadly serve our customers’ needs and support their growth initiatives.”
Gerardo Chiaia, Husky’s former President of Beverage Packaging, is leaving the organisation to dedicate more time to his family. This comes after an outstanding 24-year career with the company.
