Nordson Joins Partnership to Advance Innovation and Technology in Singapore

Singapore


Nordson is pleased to be a member of a new Singapore state government initiative focused on promoting and developing innovation and technology. Called SCALE, this initiative is intended to help Singapore-based manufacturers improve productivity and strengthen competitiveness by advancing smart manufacturing technologies. 

Commenting on this innovation effort, Mr. Chan Chun Sing, Singapore's Minister for Trade and Industry, commented, "If you don't change fast enough, other countries will overtake you with a new development that will adopt some of the latest technologies. And then you will find, when you look back in 20 years' time, that it may not be the advanced countries that are still in the forefront."

Nordson was identified as a key technology contributor in Singapore, and we were asked to participate in a special partnership to facilitate this initiative.

"Nordson has continuously contributed in driving innovation and technology in dispensing adhesives for improved bonding capabilities with high speed and accuracy in a broad market," said Chris Lui, Adhesives Managing Director for Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. "Our direct presence in Singapore and around the globe has a significant impact on our ability to serve highly demanding markets with rapid development cycles."

"Singapore continues to be a technologically-advanced, forward-leaning market, and Singapore's SCALE initiative fits well into our strategies around dispensing and factories of the future," said Greg Merk, senior executive vice president, Nordson Corporation. "I look forward to Nordson's direct presence in Singapore contributing in a positive way to the broad success of SCALE. Nordson can have a tangible impact by empowering all local partners to reach their full potential, whether it be in automation, bonding or data analysis. SCALE provides an excellent platform for us to flex our innovation muscles and will challenge us to be our best."

This is an exciting opportunity to leverage Nordson's strengths and innovation in Southeast Asia across many lines of business.
