More flexible production of mid-volume PET preforms thanks to NexPET

Husky Injection Molding Systems has launched its new NexPET system - a game-changing mid-volume PET preform molding solution purpose-built to help producers introduce multiple new applications into the market more quickly and cost-effectively than ever before.

 

Built upon Husky’s industry-leading technology, the NexPET system is engineered to enable both established and emerging producers be more competitive by better responding to evolving consumer preferences – while achieving the highest levels of value, flexibility, reliability and sustainability. For established producers, NexPET delivers an agile, reliable solution to accommodate niche brands or smaller run SKUs. For emerging producers, it is a proven, cost-effective solution that enables fast, low-risk entry into markets.

 

“Consumers are increasingly demanding more personalized products catered to their unique lifestyles and tastes. The global climate created by Covid-19 has amplified this trend, forcing many producers to rapidly adapt operations to scale up new applications like hand sanitizer, disinfectant and other health, personal care or cleaning related products,” said Robert Domodossola, Husky’s President of Rigid Packaging. “Taking into consideration feedback from our customers, as well as assessing the current market landscape, we saw the need for a more flexible, adaptable PET preform molding solution. As we present NexPET to the market I look forward to continuing the conversation with our customers to gain an even better understanding of what solutions they need to remain successful and competitive - even during these unprecedented times.”
