Following a Series of Strategic Acquisitions, Nordson Is Now a Single Global Source of Diverse Polymer Processing Components for Extrusion and Injection Molding

WESTLAKE, OH, U.S.A., November 10, 2014: A new video from Nordson Corporation showcases the company’s expertise as a global source of melt stream technologies that provides a valuable alternative for processors seeking ways to optimize their extrusion and molding operations, the company announced today.

The short video, posted at, describes the range of complementary melt processing component systems now available from Nordson following a period of strategic acquisitions that took place in 2011-2012. This range of “Extraordinary Technologies for Today’s Plastics” includes systems for melting, homogenizing, filtering, metering, and giving shape to thermoplastics, as well as applying polymer and fluid coatings.

“Nordson now serves as a single global source of screws, barrels, filtration systems, pumps, valves, and flat dies through more than 30 offices around the world, providing customers with sales service, technical support, and recommendations for optimizing their overall melt stream process,” said Kelly Harings, global manager, marketing communications, for Nordson’s polymer product lines. “Drawing on more than 200 years of collective expertise, we can advise customers on ways to increase productivity, reduce costs, or enhance product quality.”

Nordson Corporation began manufacturing systems for dispensing thermoplastics in 1964. Starting three years ago, Nordson acquired the following companies: Verbruggen (flat extrusion dies); EDI (flat extrusion, fluid coating, and pelletizing dies); Premier Dies (fluid coating dies); Xaloy (screws and barrels for extrusion and molding); BKG (pelletizing systems); and Kreyenborg (melt pumps and filtration systems). The products from these acquisitions are now brands within the Nordson PPS group.


Nordson Corporation engineers, manufactures and markets differentiated products and systems used for the precision dispensing of adhesives, coatings, sealants, biomaterials, polymers, plastics and other materials, fluid management, test and inspection, UV curing and plasma surface treatment, all supported by application expertise and direct global sales and service. Nordson serves a wide variety of consumer non-durable, durable and technology end markets including packaging, nonwovens, electronics, medical, appliances, energy, transportation, construction, and general product assembly and finishing. Founded in 1954 and headquartered in Westlake, Ohio, the company has operations and support offices in more than 30 countries. Visit Nordson on the web at, @Nordson_Corp, or
