Nordson Corp. has appointed Symbioplas Serviços de Engenharia Industrial as sales agent in Portugal for its Xaloy-branded core components for extrusion and injection moulding.

Based in Setúbal, Portugal, Symbioplas provides sales, technical support, and rework services for Xaloy screws, barrels, and front-end components, Nordson said in a statement 17 July.


The company was founded last year by polymer engineer Carlos Mano who served the industry, in technical and operational management positions, for over 24 years.


“Symbioplas will draw on its expertise to provide our customers with maximum plasticating system performance and minimum downtime,” said Ralf Hilbert, managing director of Nordson Xaloy Europe GmbH.
