Nordson Corporation has merged the capabilities of previously separate operations for the manufacture of pelletizing and melt delivery equipment, increasing Nordson's effectiveness as a leading source of supply and expertise for polymer processing components.

Nordson BKG GmbH will operate as a unit of Nordson's Polymer Processing Systems (PPS) product line and be headquartered at an extensively expanded Münster facility that will serve as a global hub for all BKG® products. The expansion at the site of the longstanding home of BKG pelletizers in Münster more than triples the space at that location. The full relocation of all operations is being staged to maximize uninterrupted supply and will be completed by the fall of 2018. The expanded facility will also house a dedicated aftermarket center for both BKG systems and EDI® extrusion and coating dies.

The combined entity is a merger of two well-known Münster-based companies acquired by Nordson in 2013: BKG GmbH, a producer of pelletizing systems, and Kreyenborg GmbH, a manufacturer of melt delivery equipment, including screen changers, diverter valves and melt pumps. Additionally Nordson acquired the EDI® and Verbruggen extrusion and coating die businesses and the Xaloy® range of screws and barrels for extrusion and injection molding. Nordson PPS now supplies these products to plastics processors, compounders, recyclers, resin manufacturers, and primary process equipment OEMs, and it supports them through a worldwide network of localized sales and service centers.

"With the merger forming Nordson BKG GmbH and the combination of our capabilities at one Münster location, Nordson has created a united team that draws on the technical and project experience of the legacy companies to create new opportunities to serve our customers," said Godfrey Sandham, vice president of Nordson PPS-EAME. "Often we supply a combination of components that work together to optimize the customer's process. A compounder or recycler, for example, can rely on us for pelletizers, valves, melt pumps, and filtration systems."

At the same time, Mr. Sandham noted, Nordson continues to build new assembly, laboratory, and technical support capabilities for BKG products elsewhere in the world, creating a truly global source of pelletizing and melt delivery technologies. Recent initiatives to expand capabilities for BKG products include assembly of screen changers and gear pumps in Shanghai, new underwater pelletizing laboratories in Shanghai and Chonburi, Thailand, and expansion of a laboratory in Hickory, NC USA for pelletizing and melt delivery equipment.
