Given estimates primarily based on industry surveys and publications from 2014, Milacron’s management believes that it is the top manufacturer and supplier of plastic processing technologies in North America on a consolidated basis across the industry’s primary plastic processing machinery applications based on sales, the top supplier to installed base worldwide based on sales, the top manufacturer and supplier of injection molding technologies in India based on sales, the top provider of hot runner systems in the Americas and Europe and the number two provider of hot runner systems in Asia based on sales.
