Nordson Fellowship of Distinguished Inventors

Nordson created the Nordson Fellowship of Distinguished Inventors to recognize individual inventors who have made an important contribution to Nordson's patented technology.

In 2001, then-Nordson Chief Executive Officer Edward Campbell inducted Eric Nord as the first member of the Nordson Fellowship of Distinguished Inventors.  Nord, one of the company's founders, developed several successful products and received 25 U.S. patents during his career.  Since then, seven other inventors have been recognized for their achievements in innovation by being inducted into the Fellowship.
