Fort Collins, Colorado – November, 2011 - Value Plastics, a Nordson company (Nasdaq: NDSN), is pleased to announce the immediate availability of their latest precision fluid management component catalog, Vol. 25. The new catalog contains detailed information on over 4,000 off-the-shelf parts as well as several new products, including the MQC Series of quick connect fittings and a new innovative line of single-use sanitary clamps – the PharmaLok Series.
Selecting from thousands of tubing connectors can be an unforeseen hindrance on speed to market – a competitive edge on which companies thrive. Therefore, to increase ease of use and efficiency, Value Plastics has chosen to make two catalog formats available to end users. For those more comfortable with solid, dependable ink, the printed desktop version will be available. For a deeper level of interaction with technical details and commercial availability, the new catalog will also be provided in an interactive, electronic format located on Value Plastics’ website. With the click of a button, customers can now:
· Immediately access dimensional part drawings
· See inventory status and forecasted availability
· View pricing information and minimum order quantities
· Add parts to an online shopping cart
· Check resin chemical resistance, regulatory information and sterilization properties
The reason for offering this new format falls right in line with Value Plastics’ overall goal – to meet the needs of their customers. By providing engineers with tools that allow them to quickly find exactly what they need, Value Plastics hopes to save customers the time and energy they could be putting towards more critical projects.
Value Plastics’ Marketing Communications Manager, Will Stone, comments, “At its heart, Value Plastics is a technology-driven company – I believe you can see that in our first-in-class website. We are simply taking advantage of emergent publishing technology to make doing business with Value Plastics as easy and pain-free as possible. With this latest electronic-delivery format we may well be seeing one of the last print-and-ship versions of our catalog as we know it, and the beginning of a deliver-as-desired, print-as-needed strategy going forward.”
