Nordson Corp. acquired Plymouth, MI-based Sealant Equipment & Engineering, Inc., a leader in the engineering and manufacturing of meter, mix, and dispense equipment and valves for application of 1-part, 2-part, and 3-part adhesive, sealant, and lubricating materials. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Sealant Equipment & Engineering had sales of $18 million in the twelve months ended June 30, 2012, and it employs 60 people. It will now operate as part of Nordson's Industrial Coating Systems segment.
"Sealant Equipment & Engineering provides Nordson with a broader presence in the cold materials equipment market and focuses on a wide variety of general industry applications," said Nordson President and CEO Michael F. Hilton. "The company is an excellent complement to Nordson's existing cold material equipment offering. It also provides us with additional capability in a space we have previously highlighted as attractive, and fits our profile of providing customers with outstanding service and differentiated products, which improve their processes and productivity. In addition, we see significant opportunities to leverage Nordson's global infrastructure to grow the business beyond its current, largely North American footprint."
