EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN) and the world’s leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, announces Plas-Pak Industries, Inc. is now Nordson EFD. The acquisition, which took place earlier this year, expands and diversifies Nordson EFD’s offering of injection molded, single-use plastic 2K dispensing and packaging products, including cartridges for industrial and commercial do-it-yourself (DIY) adhesives. Since the acquisition announcement on February 1, a systematic integration plan has been implemented. The integration allows Nordson EFD to offer spray systems for two-part materials used in maintenance and repair applications, among several other products.
“For Plas-Pak customers the benefits include access to a greater number of 2K products, better support as they grow and their needs change, and improved global footprint and fulfillment,” said Brian Dodier, Business Unit Director – Consumables. “Nordson EFD customers will benefit from the expanded selection of products the integration brings, such as snap-together Ratio-Pak® cartridges.”
The integration fills gaps in Nordson EFD’s existing 2K product line and provides broader exposure in the DIY, pipe coating, dental, and marine vessel repair markets. The integration also provides access to a new, rapidly growing 1K animal health market. Nordson EFD will now provide single-component Dial-A-Dose® calibrated syringes for veterinary and animal health applications.
In addition, Nordson EFD will leverage the 160,000 square foot, ISO 9001:2008 facility located in Norwich, Connecticut to accommodate future growth.
