Nordson Corporation has acquired Plas-Pak Industries, Inc., a Norwich, Connecticut designer and manufacturer of injection molded, single-use plastic dispensing and packaging products including two-component (2K) cartridges for industrial and commercial do-it-yourself (DIY) adhesives, dial-a-dose calibrated syringes for veterinary and animal health applications, and specialty syringes for pesticide, dental and other markets. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Plas-Pak’s recurring revenue model, proprietary technology, and low-dollar-cost, high-value-add selling proposition are highly complementary and consistent with our existing Nordson EFD product line,” said Jeff Pembroke, Corporate Vice President for Nordson’s Advanced Technology Systems segment. “Plas-Pak strengthens Nordson EFD’s position in select industrial end markets, while providing access to a rapidly growing animal health market and broader exposure to the DIY, pesticide and dental markets. We expect to leverage Nordson’s global footprint to accelerate Plas-Pak’s growth beyond its current strong presence in North America. The transaction also aligns with our strategic objective of diversifying Nordson’s Advanced Technology segment through greater participation in less cyclical end markets.”
“Plas-Pak’s talented team of employees has grown the business significantly over the years through a focus on innovation, quality, customer service and lean manufacturing,” said Plas-Pak majority owner Charles M. Frey, who has been involved with the business since its inception and will support the transition to Nordson. “Plas-Pak and Nordson share similar cultures, and I am confident Nordson will continue to provide value to our customers and growth opportunities for our employees.
