Building upon its presence in Vista and Carlsbad, the new campus will be home to several businesses in Nordson’s Advanced Technology group, including Nordson ASYMTEK, DAGE, YESTECH, Matrix and MARCH. It will house manufacturing, demonstration labs, and factory support staff for Nordson’s Advanced Technology group. Providing production flexibility and room for expansion, the new facility represents Nordson’s commitment to the 78 Corridor.

In order to support the advanced manufacturer, the City of Carlsbad – in conjunction with San Diego Regional EDC – worked to uncover specific site issues, expedited review and business liaison services to connect to regional and state resources.

After manufacturing in Carlsbad and Vista is complete, Nordson’s machines are shipped globally to assist production at large, global companies as well as smaller, highly-specialized facilities. Nordson’s customers use this equipment to manufacture products from semiconductors, mobile phones and automotive dashboards to diapers and syringes.

Nordson’s decision to grow in Carlsbad highlights the collaborative culture of the 78 corridor and the broader San Diego region. As a leader in global advanced manufacturing, Nordson’s local presence impacts a wide array of industry sectors and businesses around the globe.

“Nordson is an important company to the City of Carlsbad and the greater 78 Corridor region and we are so pleased they are growing” says Carlsbad’s Mayor Matt Hall. “We look to advanced manufacturers like Nordson to pave the way for smaller companies who may thrive on their presence and to attract high quality talent to the region.”
