The Carlsbad office holds a piece of Nordson history within its walls—the skong, a brass bell originally rung to mark the number of machines sold on the previous day. Today, the skong also tolls for sales in other Nordson Advanced Technology businesses, giving employees a simple and powerful indicator about the ever-increasing pace of business.
Nordson employees are especially proud of the company’s long-standing commitment to giving back that permeates all aspects of the business. In 2015 alone, Nordson’s Carlsbad Community Affairs Committee made financial grants to over 60 nonprofits in the areas of education, human welfare, arts & culture, and civic engagement. For all of its efforts, Nordson was recently recognized by the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce as a finalist for the Community Impact Award.
"Nordson took me in and trained me for what I am doing now—and has not ceased to challenge me. I continue to get good exposure to many different facets of engineering. Not only that—Nordson's dedication to community service makes the company a place where one can grow as a person as well."

“The culture of giving back to our communities is one of the best parts about working for Nordson. Nordson is truly a shining example of what it means to be a good corporate citizen, and I’m so proud to be a part of that.”
