Avery Dennison to expand European plant

Avery Dennison is to invest some $65 million to expand its production facility in Rodange, Luxembourg for pressure sensitive materials. Construction is expected to start later this year, once the local authorities issue a permit, with production due to start in the second half of 2018.

This investment includes a state of the art, multi-capability coater, additional slitter capacity, a new packaging line, and an automated warehouse. The plant itself will be enlarged with an additional 12,000 sqm with Avery Dennison committing to optimize its waste management, energy consumption and water-use efficiency.

The Rodange plant was chosen partly because of its high productivity and efficiency but also because its location leads to shorter customer delivery distances, which the company estimates will save 700 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.

Angelo Depietri, vice president and general manager Materials Group Europe, explained: “Following years of increasing market demand in Europe, and in line with our long-term growth strategy, we have decided to increase our capacity and capabilities so we can bring customer service and product quality to the next level.”

He continued: “Moreover, in building a platform with sustainability and flexibility in mind, we are gaining an even greater ability to be responsive to our customer needs in both of these pivotal areas. The new technologies that are an integral part of this expansion will provide our customers with increased choices and opportunities as we grow together in the years to come.”
