Innovation is in our DNA
The Avery Dennison story began in 1935 when our founder, Stan Avery, invented the world’s first self-adhesive label, pioneering an entire industry. Over more than 80 years, we have grown from that bright idea into a global corporation that continues to set new standards for quality and innovation in materials science.
Today, we sustain Stan Avery's spirit of curiosity through research, innovation and the 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.
