Nordson And Henkel Establish Global Alliance On Innovative Consumer Packaging Solutions

Stocks in this article: NDSN

“We are committed to providing the best products and services to our customers,” said Jan-Dirk Auris, executive vice president of Henkel Adhesive Technologies. “Offering total solutions that leverage the expertise from both Nordson and Henkel will demonstrate that commitment. We are excited about the incomparable benefits the new Alliance will be able to deliver to our customers. This alliance is very focused on sustainability. As an example, one critical issue facing the packaging industry has been the short supply of some traditional petrochemical-based raw materials used in the manufacture of hot melt adhesives. These supply issues stem from the increasing demand for these raw materials for other end products worldwide. The Freedom™ System represents an integrated design effort between Henkel and Nordson, which matches next generation high performance hot melt adhesive and advanced dispensing equipment to help meet such challenges.”

More specifically, the Freedom™ System combines optimized, high-performance adhesives with innovative dispensing equipment that eliminates conventional hot melt adhesive tanks and integrates adhesive-saving intermittent bead dispensing. Customers employing the system derive maximum value in the form of six Freedoms:

  • Freedom from raw materials supply risk
  • Freedom to mount anywhere
  • Freedom from downtime
  • Freedom from machine complexity
  • Freedom from material waste
  • Freedom from operator interaction

The alliance announcement was made at a press conference held at PACK EXPO International in Chicago, Illinois, USA, held October 28 through October 31, 2012, where both companies are exhibiting their most recent innovations. Jan-Dirk Auris, executive vice president of Henkel Adhesive Technologies and Michael Hilton, chief executive officer of Nordson, delivered an overview of the companies’ combined efforts and plans.
