Nordson Corp., which has its corporate headquarters in Westlake, OH, is building a new facility in Münster, Germany, to serve as a global hub for all of the company’s BKG products, which include underwater and water ring pelletizers and melt delivery systems such as screen changers, gear pumps and polymer valves. The facility also will house a dedicated aftermarket center for both BKG systems and EDI extrusion and coating dies. The initiative will be one of the talking points at the Nordson stand (A6, 6109) at Fakuma, which comes to Friedrichshafen, Germany, next week.
Besides expanding capabilities for engineering, manufacturing and sales of these products, the project will include an enhanced technical center for R&D and customer and laboratory trials, said Nordson. The aftermarket center will provide European customers with rework and repair services and will be designed to minimize order lead times and reduce downtime for customers.
