Avery Dennison expands film capacity
The Fasson Roll North America division of Avery Dennison Corporation has invested $20 million in additional coating and finishing capacity at its Quakertown, PA, USA facility. This additional capacity will support the expanding product needs of the food, beverage, household, and personal care markets.
“Both local and global brand owners and retailers will benefit from our expanded manufacturing capacity,” says Albert Groen, global business director, food and beverage. “Brand savvy consumer goods companies recognize that packaging design is a key competitive advantage. They are looking for ways to differentiate their products through innovative packaging. Our manufacturing investment will allow us to broaden our range of products offered to various markets, while utilizing our in-place service programs to meet turnaround needs.”
The Quakertown facility serves as one of the major strategic manufacturing and distribution hubs for Avery Dennison. Many of the products being manufactured there will be available Fasson EXACT, a service program that provides converters with the exact width required, resulting in cost savings through reduced trim and waste.
