A phased transition will take place for the facility and the employees based out of Gurgaon plant over a period of time, as per business requirements. However, the corporate office of the company will remain in Gurgaon.
Spread over an area of 12 acres, the new plant will produce pressure-sensitive materials for the labelling and packaging industry, and 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 will have state-of-the-art coating and lamination lines, along with high-speed sliters and sheeters.
Saurabh Agarwal, senior director and general manager, Label and Packaging Materials, South Asia for Avery Dennison, said, “UP has emerged as a strategic business location, offering better connectivity and opportunities to serve key customers and markets. The new facility not only enhances our production capacity, but it 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.”
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 as well as in the Asia Pacific region.”
He 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 in this space globally. Additionally, this facility was designed and constructed as per green building standards. We have also installed solar power for green energy.”
