RICHMOND HILL, Ontario, November 29, 2011 – Amsler Equipment Inc., a leading Canadian manufacturer of all-electric, reheat stretch blow molding machines based in Richmond Hill, Ont., has appointed Tom Schneider and Bill O’Day of GMK Advisors Inc., Chicago, to manage the company’s sales and marketing efforts in the U.S. and the Caribbean, it was announced today by Heidi Amsler, sales and marketing manager of Amsler Equipment.
GMK Advisors Inc. was formerly the sales representative for Mag-Plastic Machinery, based in Vouvry, Switzerland, a manufacturer of stretch-blow molding machinery. In September, Mag-Plastic announced that it will no longer manufacture stretch-blow molding machinery.
President Werner Amsler said the appointment is a key part of the company’s aggressive growth strategy in the U.S. “We’re excited about joining forces with one of the industry’s leading machine sales representatives to help position us for future growth,” said Amsler. “Teaming up with GMK will also provide continuity for existing Mag-Plastic equipment customers.” He noted that Amsler blow molders are designed to be compatible with molds currently running on Mag-Plastic machines.
GMK Advisors Inc. will support the sales of Amsler’s broad range of highly-efficient reheat stretch-blow molding machines and auxiliary equipment for production of PET plastic containers for the beverage, personal care, household products, detergent, chemicals, and food industries. The product line includes one- to six-cavity linear machines producing up to 10,000 bottles/hr and 10- and 16-cavity rotary blow molders with output up to 24,000 bottles/hr.
