Baldwin Technology Company has agreed to purchase Nordson UV Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordson Corporation, which develops UV curing systems. Nordson is to retain its industrial UV curing product lines.
“We have had a mutually beneficial alliance with Nordson for several years, so this combination is a logical step in that relationship,” stated Karl S. Puehringer, President and CEO of Baldwin, in a press release. “It will enable our customers to partner with a single-source for both IR [infra-red] drying and UV [ultra violet] curing on both offset and digital printing.”
The Nordson UV business, which sells systems under its own brand name, as well as the Horizon and Primarc brand names, is currenlty based in Slough, England.
The transaction is expected to close by June 30, when Nordson UV will be renamed Baldwin UV Ltd.
