CHIPPEWA FALLS, WI, U.S.A., September 17, 2015: In a move that will significantly expand service to customers in Mexico, Nordson Corporation has appointed Bernal Industrial, Inc. as its exclusive agent for all Nordson Polymer Processing Systems (PPS) brands and has increased access to direct support from Nordson for Mexican plastics processors.

Bernal Industrial will represent the Nordson EDI range of flat dies for film, sheet, and coating; the Nordson Kreyenborg range of melt filtration systems, gear pumps, and melt valves; and the Nordson BKG range of underwater pelletizing and drying systems. The company has already been serving as the agent in Mexico for the Nordson Xaloy range of screws, barrels, valves and other components for extrusion and molding.

In addition, Mexican customers can now draw on direct support from three Nordson PPS plastics processing equipment experts whose combined experience totals 100 years.

“To further integrate our many product offerings within the Nordson PPS portfolio, we have chosen Bernal Industrial to be the sole representative of these brands in Mexico,” said Scott Springer, Nordson PPS sales director for the Americas. “Bernal Industrial will work in coordination with our Nordson PPS experts to strengthen our support for the country’s rapidly growing plastics processing industry. And by providing access to the full array of Nordson PPS technologies, this team will offer customers the opportunity to take a systems approach to sourcing components for their processing operations.”

Bernal Industrial, Inc. specializes in providing Mexican plastics processors with technical sales and service for leading brands of equipment and systems. Founded in 1996 by managing director Daniel E. Bernal, the company has a staff of eleven sales and service personnel.
