The Rodange plant is the company’s largest facility in Europe and is used to produce paper and film pressure sensitive label materials for home and personal care, food, beverage and durable applications. Avery Dennison has spent some $65 million on this expansion, which includes a state of the art, multi-capability coater, additional slitter capacity, a new packaging line and an automated warehouse. This investment adds the ability to produce top coated films and takes the total space at Rodange up by more than 12,000 sqm. 

Avery Dennison says that by building the facility in a location closer to more of its customers it should save around 700 tons of greenhouse gasses from reduced delivery-related energy consumption. The factory itself has been designed to deliver maximum sustainability benefits related to waste management, energy consumption and water-use efficiency.

Tim Presto, vice president of supply chain & operations Europe, at Avery Dennison. “It gives us a more flexible and agile production network, increases our topcoating capabilities and helps us to better address fluctuations in customer demand. With its modern set-up and central location, the new expansion supports our sustainability ambitions. It leverages our footprint to minimize our CO2 impact by reducing the need for transport within the production process, while putting us closer to more of our customers. Finally, and most importantly, it gives us state-of-the-art machines and equipment that strengthen our product quality while maximizing uptime.”
