Avery stakes growth on Kunshan

In what represents a multi-million-dollar investment, Avery Dennison has launched a new high-speed emulsion and hot melt coating line at its Kunshan facility in Jiangsu Province, China. The global materials science company held an inauguration ceremony for the new release, which it calls the very latest in coating technology.

The ceremony celebrates the single largest Avery Dennison investment in its Label and Graphic Materials business in China to date. Georges Gravanis, president of Label and Graphic Materials at Avery Dennison, comments: “The launch of this high-speed coating line is another important milestone in the history of our growth in the Chinese market. Underlying our long-term commitment to the local market, it will enable us to continue to provide high-quality products and services to our customers here in China.”

The new high speed coating line is installed at the firm’s Kunshan production campus close to Shanghai and became operational in November 2017 following an 18-month construction and installation process. The investment includes a 14,000 SQM facility expansion with room for a dedicated warehouse and finishing.

The facility to house the coating line has been certified “LEED Silver” by LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), the international green building rating system.
