Husky concludes two successful medical-focused events in China
The Schöttli Medical Conference and MedTec tradeshow in Shanghai highlight Husky’s commitment to the medical plastics industry in the Asia-Pacific region
BOLTON, Ontario – Husky Injection Molding Systems successfully wrapped up two major events in China last week with a Schöttli Medical Conference, part of the company’s Husky World Tour, and the MedTec China show, both taking place in Shanghai. The Husky World Tour event boasted nearly 50 attendees and featured insightful presentations, engaging discussions, and the opportunity to network with Husky and other experts from across the industry. MedTec China allowed Husky to highlight its precision mold-making capabilities for customers in the medical industry in China. Husky maintains a focus on building new relationships in the medical industry, as well as supporting customers at a local level; regional events ensure Husky stays well-connected with the issues customers face, and provides an opportunity to examine industry trends in-depth.
The Schöttli Medical Conference, an event hosted by Husky via its Schöttli brand, provided insight on how Schöttli/Husky solutions can optimize medical manufacturing performance while mitigating risk. Presentations at the World Tour event included information on challenges and opportunities in the medical market and their impact on the plastics industry, as well as system-level solutions for medical applications. Guest speakers included Russell Tew, Business Development Manager at Borealis, who discussed Innovation in plastics materials for medical applications, and Jack Zuo, Sales Manager China, at Hekuma, who presented on How to improve competitiveness through automation.
MedTec China, organized by UBM, is the premier manufacturing sourcing event for medical device manufacturers in China. Taking place on September 22-24 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, the show provided opportunities for customers to seek out leading global design and manufacturing technology for medical devices and featured a highly-sought out conference track, focused on highlighting new developments in the industry. This year, the exhibition scale increased by 30%, covering the entire upstream industry chain, and featured ten product zones. The show boasts a regular attendance of over 10,000 visitors.
“The Husky World Tour event provided a more intimate experience for our customers, allowing us to share our knowledge and gain a deeper understanding of their specific needs in this region of the world. The market in China is quite unique, and the solutions that Schöttli and Husky can offer drive high-quality, low-risk production with the lowest total cost of ownership,” said Johannes Strassner, Husky’s Vice President, Medical.
The Husky World Tour 2015 is a series of global customer events taking place throughout the year, giving customers more direct access to Husky’s technologies at a local level. This year, Husky has participated in a mix of both traditional trade shows (including Plastindia, NPE, and CMEF) and Husky World Tour events.
“Both of these events in China were great ways for us to connect with local customers, and showcase our capability in the plastics medical industry. Both the Husky World Tour event and the MedTec show were well attended by medical professionals, offering us a great platform to showcase the high-precision medical parts that Schöttli is known for. Schöttli, a Husky company since 2013, exemplifies quality and reliability, and these venues allowed us to highlight that expertise,” said Henry Zhang, Husky’s Director of Business Development for Medical and Specialty Packaging.
