MASSILLON, OHIO — Extrusion equipment manufacturer NFM Welding Engineers Inc. has opened a sales office in Dalian, China.
President Paul Roberson said NFM has used sales representatives for years, but now has its own office. Many NFM customers serve Asia's growing automotive and heavy industrial sectors, he said.
“NFM has been selling our WE series of counter-rotating, non-intermeshing twin-screw extruders into the Asian market since 1998, under the umbrella of NFM and for many years prior under Welding Engineers Inc. We have been successful in selling to large-scale petrochemical operations as well as smaller new polymer development projects,” Roberson said. “We have sold extrusion systems from 20 millimeters to 200 mm into the Asian market and continue to support polymer production and technology development in those areas.”
NFM also sells rubber extruders and aftermarket components. Roberson said the Dalian location will help the company support global rubber extrusion customers.
NFM will continue to manufacture all its equipment in Massillon.
