Today, Nordson India’s team members are spread across 11 cities in India—Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, New Delhi, Pune and Rudrapur. In addition, it is also represented in Colombo (Sri Lanka) and Karachi (Pakistan).

Services offered

With 70 direct employees, Nordson India carries out engineering, marketing, manufacturing and customer support activities required by Nordson’s customers in South Asia. Nordson India also designs and develops next-generation products and technologies for use in Nordson’s markets worldwide, including hardware and software solutions.

Nordson India’s Engineering Resources & Technology Centre in Bengaluru houses laboratories with a comprehensive range of test equipment and the capability to simulate production processes in a controlled environment. These labs are used to develop solutions for customers and even for training—of customers as well as Nordson’s own personnel. In addition, the Centre designs and develops new products that are uniquely suited for the Indian market and other developing economies.

The most recent development is a powder booth made of composite materials. This is similar to the Apogee material used in the US, but is a good deal less expensive. These booths have given Nordson India a big competitive advantage in the country.

Products offered

Nordson India has also developed innovative automation systems to add value to Nordson’s products. Such systems have been successfully delivered for applications like labelling stock, surgical tape, tamper-evident cartons, solar thermal panels, water filters, energy meters and many others. While many of these have been installed in India, Nordson’s subsidiaries and distributors in other emerging countries have also purchased Nordson India systems from time to time. As a result, Nordson India equipment can today be found in countries like Saudi Arabia, UAE, etc.

In 2000, Nordson India created its Embedded Systems Group, to develop software and hardware solutions for its global ICS business. Today, this group has grown to 14 people who develop new hardware and software products, test them and even develop low cost sources. Currently, this activity is done for the ICS and ADS business groups. Many of the products developed by this group are already being offered in global markets: the Prodigy manual gun controller, the Vantage automatic controller, the Vantage manual gun controller, iTrax PRx Controller, Encore XT Controller, and many others.

Strengths

The majority of Nordson’s employees in India are qualified engineers or managers, and most of them are trained extensively at Nordson’s international facilities. This combination of infrastructure, skills and training, at locations that are close to customers in the territory, has resulted in Nordson’s ability to offer world-class capabilities to customers in South Asia. This aspect is seen as one of the key factors behind Nordson’s success in the region.

Karsten Bier, CEO

RECOM, a leading supplier of converters in the power range of 0.25 W to 60 W, offers a portfolio of 22,000 DC/DC converters, AC/DC converters, switching regulators and LED drivers. These converters are available from the world’s leading distributors. The high performance products are engineered in Europe and offer high isolation, high ambient temperatures and high efficiency combined with a low cost of ownership.

At RECOM, we have a very simple quality objective: Zero defects,” says Karsten Bier, CEO of the RECOM Group. “We make no compromises and use the best parts available in the market,” he continues.

All prototypes are HALT tested in the company’s environmental laboratory prior to release. Once a product is in the market, samples are re-tested on a regular basis to ensure ‘Total Quality’. Some of the products have a tested ‘design lifetime’ of >70,000 hours, which is why the company can easily offer a product warranty of up to 5 years.

The company has made significant investments in new products during the past months and is set to grow faster than the industry average.

The company’s growth is driven by its well-established practice of using certified converter modules rather than discrete solutions. “Time to market is what counts for most of our customers,” says Bier, “even if the BOM is a little higher.”
