Nordson aligns melt delivery systems under one brand; to expand operations in Germany

China’s Guangdong

Nordson Corporation’s BKG product, which includes underwater pelletiser systems, is now also the group brand name for the company’s diverse range of polymer melt delivery equipment, including filtration systems, ovens, gear pumps, and valves.

Now included under the BKG brand are melt filtration systems, gear pumps, and valves previously offered under the Kreyenborg brand, plus screen changers, ovens, and gear pumps previously sold under the Xaloy brand. The melt delivery system business that Nordson acquired from Kreyenborg in 2013 will be moved from its existing facility in Münster, Germany, and combined with the nearby BKG pelletiser business. Nordson will expand its operations in Münster to approximately four times the current size to optimise production and accommodate future growth.

The Xaloy product brand will continue to be used for Nordson’s screw and barrel products for extrusion and injection moulding, and European operations for this product family will continue to be headquartered at Neckarsulm, Germany, with operations in Pirmasens.

“The expansion in Münster is part of a substantial global investment by Nordson in its polymer processing range of products, including other expansion projects and investments in Europe and China, a buildup of the support team around the world, and innovations for each of our polymer product families,” said Nordson Corp. Senior Vice-President John J. Keane. “

The scope of Nordson’s investment programme will be evident at the larger Münster facility, where it will be adding advanced engineering and manufacturing systems, a new warehouse and inventory system, a dedicated aftermarket section, and an expanded technology centre.
