As part of its Manufacturing Appreciation Week, the state of Georgia recently recognized Nordson Corp.’s Swainsboro manufacturing facility as its mid-size manufacturer of the year. The award is based on multiple criteria, including economic impact on the community and surrounding area, corporate responsibility and community involvement programs, workforce excellence, and letters of support. Nordson operates two Georgia facilities, in Swainsboro and Johns Creek. The facilities support the company’s adhesive dispensing systems segment.

“We are extremely honored to accept this award,” said Jim DeVries, corporate vice president of Global Continuous Improvement. “Georgia is a great place to do business and we’ve been operating in the state for more than 23 years. Due to the tremendous growth of our business, we opened a new expanded facility in Swainsboro last year just miles away from our previous facility. The city of Swainsboro, the Swainsboro Chamber of Commerce and the local Joint Development Authority have always been great partners and they were instrumental in making this new facility a reality. As a result of this strong partnership, the Swainsboro workforce has tripled to over 180 workers, many of whom were hired through Georgia’s Quickstart program.”
