The company’s products, which are used in nearly every major industry, include pressure-sensitive materials for labels and graphic applications; tapes and other bonding solutions for industrial, medical and retail applications; tags, labels and embellishments for apparel; and radio-frequency identification (RFID) solutions serving retail apparel and other markets.
Our Competitive Advantage
Avery Dennison’s global scale – operating in over 180 locations – and extensive expertise in our core businesses allows us to be recognized as an industry leader.
Ray Stanton (“Stan”) Avery invented the world’s first self-adhesive label as a way to merchandise objects. In 1935, he founded Avery Adhesives in downtown Los Angeles and, in 1990, the company merged with Dennison Manufacturing to form Avery Dennison. Over the past 80+ years, we have grown from one bright idea into a global Fortune 500® corporation that continues to advance quality and innovation in materials science.
Avery built a plant for the new base materials division in Painesville, Ohio. The division was originally named the Avery Paper Company. In 1954, it was incorporated as Fasson.
Avery goes international. Also, one of our earliest known Avery trade show exhibits.
The company name was changed to Avery Adhesive Products, after Avery’s board dissolved the separate Fasson Company and integrated it into the parent corporation.
Avery Adhesive Products changes its name to Avery Products Corporation to account for its entry into new, nonadhesive areas.
Avery obtained listing on the New York Stock Exchange. In the photo, Stan Avery, Russ Smith and the president of the New York Stock Exchange watch as the company’s symbol appears on the electronic board of the NYSE for the first time.
Avery constructed an entirely solvent-free plant at Peachtree City, Georgia.
With annual sales at $300 million, Avery Products was recognized in 1974 by its inclusion on the Fortune list of the 500 largest U.S. industrial corporations. The company was renamed Avery International in 1976.
Avery Dennison was created by the strategic merger of Avery International and Dennison Manufacturing.
