10 Years of Absolute Haitian
Ten years ago, Haitian launched its relationship with The Absolute Companies, leading to the rapid expansion of Haitian and Zhafir injection molding machines in molding plants throughout the U.S. and Canada.
“The wide range of injection molding machines in clamping force categories, with medium and smaller tonnages in the electric series and larger ones in servo-hydraulics, has meant that we have a cost-effective offering for many injection molders in the U.S. and Canada,” said Nate Smith, one of the owners of Absolute Haitian.
“Now we are looking forward to the growth of Haitian’s application-specific solutions in various end-market sectors such as packaging, high-speed, precision, multi-component and systems solutions,” said Smith. “We never lose sight of our goal to offer these at a cost-effective price point to keep U.S. and Canadian molders competitive. That is essential to our commitment to molders.”
