East Providence, RI—Nordson EFD, a Nordson Corporation company, is celebrating its 50th anniversary throughout 2013 with participation in numerous North American and international trade shows, a global advertising and public relations campaign, and special customer incentive programs.

Nordson EFD is a global leader in precision fluid dispensing and fluid management systems—thousands of manufacturers throughout the world use the company’s dispensing equipment to apply controlled amounts of the adhesives, lubricants and other fluids used to assemble a wide variety of products, ranging from small medical devices to mobile phones to commercial aircraft.

“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,” says Nordson EFD vice-president and general manager Ken Forden.

“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. 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 Corporation. 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.
