Nordson EFD, a Nordson company, is marking its 50th anniversary this year with participation in numerous North American and international trade shows, a global advertising and public relations campaign, and special customer incentive programs. A global leader in precision fluid dispensing and fluid management systems, Nordson EFD manufactures dispensing equipment to apply controlled amounts of the adhesives, lubricants and other fluids used to assemble a variety of products.

“This year marks 50 years of commitment to developing innovative technologies that help our global customers build their own products better, faster and more cost effectively,” said Ken Forden, vice president and general manager. “Innovation and a genuine commitment to our customers have always been the cornerstones of our success. Over the past 50 years, not only have we stayed in contact with our customers and watched for trends in the many industries we serve, but we have also expanded our product lines, won an assortment of prestigious awards and earned the title of the world's leading designer and manufacturer of precision dispensing systems.

“The recent enhancements to our PICO™ dispensing systems are a good example of our focus on understanding and anticipating the fluid management needs of the companies and industries we serve,” he said. “We more than tripled their speed so they can operate continuously at up to 500 cycles per second—making them the fastest piezoelectric valves in the industry. This will help high-volume manufacturers who run their production lines 24/7 make more product in less time than ever before.”

EFD was founded in 1963 and after years of steady growth was acquired by the Nordson Corp. Today, Nordson EFD holds a worldwide reputation as a customer-focused organization with more than 600 employees dedicated to providing customers in more than 30 countries with superior products, service and technical support.
