Avery Dennison Upgrades its Schwelm Plant
A EUR 17 million upgrade at the Avery Dennison plant in Schwelm, Germany, including a new coater, is giving graphics customers across Europe access to more than 7600 product variations in total. The new coater offers large production flexibility with two coating methods and ten different solvent-based adhesives.
Shaun Hobson, senior business director, Graphic Solutions, at Avery Dennison Materials Group Europe, said that the investment reflected the company’s strong ongoing commitment to the graphics segment: “Our customers want the widest possible choice of application options. This very powerful new resource runs in 7-day operation and broadens our offering further, ensuring exceptional service. The Schwelm investment is one more example of how we are continuing to drive forward graphics innovation and service improvements.”
The new coater was launched at a customer event that showcased the Schwelm plant’s comprehensive production and customer service operation, which includes additional coaters, slitters, cross-sheeters and a packaging line, as well as an automated and semi-automated warehouse.
