The operations will ramp up to full scale over the next few months. The expansion is part of its overall strategy to reinforce its commitment to India’s growth and better serve its markets and customers.
Avery Dennison, a leader in global materials science and manufacturing, is to commence operations in its new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Greater Noida. Through this new facility, the company will be consolidating its manufacturing operations to serve customer demands better while optimizing the latest technology and leveraging improved efficiencies. A phased transition will take place for the facility and employees based out of Gurgaon plant over a period of time, as per business requirements. However, the corporate office of the company continues to be in Gurgaon.
Spread over 12 acres, the new state-of-the-art plant will produce technologically advanced, pressure-sensitive materials for the labeling and packaging industry. It would incorporate best practices available across Avery Dennison globally. The new facility, whose land has been allotted by Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA), will be equipped with the latest high-speed coating technology and state-of-the-art coating and lamination lines, along with high-speed sliters and sheeters.
Speaking on occasion, Saurabh Agarwal, senior director and general manager, Label and Packaging Materials, South Asia for Avery Dennison, said, “U.P. has emerged as a strategic business location, offering better connectivity and opportunities to serve key customers and markets. The new facility enhances our production capacity and further strengthens our company’s position in the industry. This move is the culmination of the customer’s increased demand as well as the potential India holds as a region. I’m extremely pleased that this achievement has taken place in the same year Avery Dennison is celebrating 25 years of doing business in India.”
Speaking on this move, Mahesh Pathak, senior director, Operations, Label and Graphic Materials, South Asia Pacific and Sub Saharan Africa for Avery Dennison, said, “This expansion is part of our long-term commitment to the Indian market, and our deep belief that it will offer enormous opportunities for the company and its ecosystem partners. The addition of this new greenfield facility in the North further strengthens our presence in the Indian market and the Asia Pacific region.”
Pathak added, “The new plant is equipped with next-generation technology in line with industry 4.0 and has one of the latest and fastest coating and laminating machines globally. Additionally, this facility was designed and constructed as per Green building standards, and we have also installed solar power for green energy.”
With this key business milestone, Avery Dennison celebrates 25 years of business operations in India. Having a presence in India for over two decades, the company has consistently led the way in transforming the Indian label industry.
