Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE: AVY) is a Fortune 500® company with sales of $6 billion from continuing operations in 2015. We are based in Glendale, California.


The Avery Dennison story begins in 1935, with just a few spare parts, one very bright idea and a $100 loan.


Ray Stanton (“Stan”) Avery, a struggling clerk in Los Angeles, invented a smarter way for stores to price their products, then went on to pioneer the labeling industry.


With a few simple materials—primarily used machine parts and a saber saw—Stan created and patented the first self-adhesive, die-cut labeling machine. His practical genius would ultimately yield eighteen patents and establish Avery Adhesives as the company that transformed how brands and businesses deliver information. In 1990, Avery International merged with Dennison Manufacturing to become Avery Dennison.


Today, we manufacture and distribute labeling and packaging materials in over 50 countries and employ more than 25,000 people. The flexibility and responsiveness afforded by our company's global footprint enables us to service our customers at key points throughout their supply chain.


In just over 80 years we have grown from one bright idea into a global corporation that continues to set new standards for quality and innovation in materials science.


Avery Dennison manufactures and distributes display graphics, labeling and packaging materials, retail graphic embellishments and RFID tags that companies around the world use to engage customers and efficiently manage their inventories. Our products are virtually everywhere you look, providing a crucial thread in the fabric of global commerce.


We sustain Stan Avery's spirit of curiosity through research, invention and development of new materials science products and processes. Our expertise in high-speed manufacturing, information display and management, logistics, branding, graphics and packaging enables us to impact a wide array of markets—from consumer packaged goods and apparel to transportation, architecture and healthcare.


We strive to make each customer's brand more inspiring and every process more intelligent.


Avery Dennison's extensive experience in our core businesses allows us to purchase, process, and deliver needed materials to key points in our customers' supply chains with rapid and globally consistent execution.


In the 21st century, the company will expand its footprint in emerging markets.


The pursuit of this vision has compelled us to align our businesses into a focused, customer-driven company that specializes in materials science. Our in-depth pool of expertise and global scale enable us to deliver insights, innovative products and intelligent solutions to customers all over the world.

Written by Machine Operator (Current Employee) from Cramlington, Northumberland on 18 May 2017
Hard work in the area I am in work. Two person job done by one and there are similar jobs here but other areas are easy and a lot more relaxed. Management is not the best, their attitude to different operators is puzzling and I was put in an area with little chance of advancement. and high pressure.
