Avery Dennison officially opened its expanded production facility at the Rodange plant in Luxembourg, completing a $65 million project to strengthen its European manufacturing footprint. The previously announced investment is one of Avery Dennison’s largest operational initiatives globally in recent years.
The expansion incorporates a state of the art, multi-capability coater, additional slitter capacity, a new packaging line and an automated warehouse. The total space utilised in Rodange increased by more than 12,000 sqm and is optimised to deliver sustainability benefits related to waste management, energy consumption and water-use efficiency. In addition, by building the facility in a location closer to more of its customers, the company is anticipating an annual reduction in greenhouse gasses of 700 tons from reduced delivery-related energy consumption.
