Nordson XALOY is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of components and melt delivery systems for injection and extrusion machinery. The company has offered the highest quality in barrels, high performance feed screws, preassembled plasticating systems, heat transfer rolls, melt pumps, screen changers, pelletizers, and cleaning ovens for more than 82 years.
Nordson Xaloy’s presence in the Oh-Penn Region includes manufacturing facilities in Boardman, OH and New Castle, PA. As an employer with operations in both states, they have realized the importance of supporting regional initiatives to succeed in today’s marketplace. As a member of the PA Manufacturing Industry Partnership, Nordson Xaloy provided leadership in helping identify solutions for issues that face regional manufacturers.
Strategies identified during the 2012 Manufacturing Workforce Summit, at which Colleen Chamberlain, HR Administrator/Specialist from Nordson Xaloy participated as a panelist, eventually culminated in the region receiving the Oh-Penn Pathways to Competitiveness Project.
Nordson Xaloy continues to provide support for this initiative by participating on the Manufacturing Advisory Committee. “Our goal is to increase awareness of manufacturing as a viable career choice for today’s youth,” says Colleen Chamberlain. “By participating in events that promote manufacturing, we can get our message out to youth and their parents.”
