Nordson Corp. continues to add to its portfolio of plastics equipment companies. In July, the Westlake, Ohio, firm bought Kreyenborg GmbH, which makes screen changers; and sister company BKG Bruckmann, which makes pelletizers. Kreyenborg and Bruckmann are based in Munster, Germany, and serve North America from Lawrenceville, Ga. The transaction is expected to close this month.

The two companies are the latest members of Nordson’s Adhesive Dispensing Systems business. Last year, Nordson purchased Xaloy, Pulaski, Va., which makes screws, barrels, screen changers, melt pumps, and a variety of other plastics equipment; and EDI (known now as Nordson Extrusion Dies Inc.), Chippewa Falls, Wis., which makes cast film and sheet dies and feedblocks. In 2011, Nordson bought Value Plastics, Ft. Collins, Colo., which makes tube fittings and connectors; and Verbruggen of Belgium, which also makes flat dies.
