Nordson And Henkel Establish Global Alliance On Innovative Consumer Packaging Solutions

Henkel (Dax: HEN.DE), the leader in adhesives used for package bonding and sealing, and Nordson Corporation (Nasdaq: NDSN), a leading producer of precision dispensing equipment for adhesives and other materials, today announced that they have established a global alliance on new technology development for the packaging market worldwide to provide significant benefits and deliver greater value to their customers.

This alliance integrates Nordson’s expertise in equipment engineering and dispensing technology with Henkel’s formulating ability and application knowledge to address the challenges facing packaging customers. To meet those challenges, the two companies will offer integrated, innovative solutions that aim to increase reliability and process efficiency, reducing costs and increasing customer profitability. The alliance will also focus on increasing sustainability and minimizing packagers’ impact on the environment.

Today, in Chicago at PACK EXPO, the largest, most comprehensive processing and packaging event in North America, the companies are previewing one of the first offerings to result from their alliance, the new Freedom™ System. The system combines Nordson’s Freedom™ Series Hot Melt Dispensing equipment with Henkel’s Technomelt® Freedom™-certified adhesives to help customers contain costs and simplify operations to increase productivity, reliability, and sustainability. This optimized combination of adhesive and equipment is in selected field tests now with a full commercial launch anticipated in the first quarter of 2013.

“Nordson and Henkel are leaders in their respective fields, and this alliance deepens our ongoing commitment to the packaging industry,” said Michael Hilton, president and chief executive officer of Nordson. “Together, we are better positioned to provide innovative solutions to meet our customers’ needs and help them address industry challenges. The Freedom™ System is one of the many ways our combined efforts will benefit our common customers worldwide by increasing packaging efficiency and reducing cost per package sealed. We look forward to collectively supporting the many potential opportunities this relationship can foster to add value to our customers.”
