Avery Dennison has added wide web, high-speed coating capabilities to its plant in Bangi, Malaysia, the company has announced. The expanded production capacity resulting from the first installation of such technology in the ASEAN region further differentiates the company’s solutions and enables superior product quality.
"Our growth in the region has been robust, and we are excited to deliver such innovative technology in an increasingly competitive region," says David Martin, vice president and general manager, Avery Dennison, Materials Group, ASEAN, Australia and New Zealand. "Our customers expect high quality solutions and a competitive value proposition, which we will continue to deliver through our latest investments in the ASEAN region. We are supporting our customers’ growth through industry leading coating technology, capabilities and a team who are excited to deliver on our promise.”
According to the company, the addition of the 1.5m-width high-speed coater will enable Avery Dennison to keep pace with the rapid growth it has experienced in the ASEAN region. The technology offers higher coating speeds and filmic capability, effectively providing the company with the capacity to meet increasing demands.
Avery Dennison currently has two manufacturing locations in the ASEAN region. The Bangi plant, opened in 1997 and a plant located in Rayong, Thailand. Both facilities serve customers in Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia, enabling the company to respond rapidly to all customers across the region.
"Not only are we increasing our capacity in line with demand, but we are also investing in the capability to offer a broader product offering and make ourselves more competitive," Martin says.
