Avery Dennison Expands Luxemburg Production Facility
Demand for pressure-sensitive materials continues to grow in Europe. To meet future demand, Avery Dennison is strengthening its European manufacturing footprint with a USD 65 million investment to expand its Rodange, Luxembourg production facility. The investment is one of Avery Dennison’s largest operational initiatives globally in recent years.
The expansion incorporates a state of the art, multi-capability coater, additional slitter capacity, a new packaging line, and an automated warehouse. The total space utilized in Rodange will increase by more than 12,000 sqm and will be optimized to deliver maximized sustainability related to waste management, energy consumption and water-use efficiency. Following an assessment of potential locations for this investment, Rodange emerged as the preferred option on two particular fronts: high productivity and efficiency, and shorter customer delivery distances, which enhances service capability while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Specifically, by situating this added capacity in centrally-located Luxemburg, associated greenhouse gas emissions will be decreased by 700 tons annually, contributing to the realization of the goals Avery Dennison set out in its Sustainability Agenda 2025.
A permit to begin the expansion is expected from local authorities in Rodange by the end of September, with construction expected to begin later this year. Initial production from the expansion is expected in the second half of 2018.
