Husky Injection Molding Systems
Husky, a Canadian maker of injection molding systems, has established an enviable position in the market for plastics processing equipment.

Husky is enjoying robust growth and record profits in 1996 when competitors attack its core markets. As financial results deteriorate rapidly, founder and CEO Robert Schad must decide how to defend Husky's traditional markets and whether to expand beyond those markets.
