As part of its strategic growth initiative, Avery Dennison, a global leader in pressure-sensitive labeling materials, has opened its first distribution center in Japan. The new center will enable the Company to provide better service to local and regional customers, even in this difficult economic environment.

"In opening this sophisticated new distribution facility, we are demonstrating our ongoing commitment to Japan and the Asia Pacific region," said Dean A. Scarborough, president and chief executive officer of Avery Dennison Corporation. “We have high expectations for the growth of this dynamic and important market during the next several decades and will continue to increase our resources and expand our efforts to serve our customers here.”

Avery Dennison is committed to investing in key business capabilities that will enable it to help its customers significantly grow their businesses both domestically and globally. The new distribution center is part of an initial investment of US $6 million in Japan, where the Company has taken a number of initiatives in the last year to centralize its operations, develop alliances and provide more efficient and cost effective service to its customers.

Located near to the Port of Chiba, the new distribution center will centrally manage the distribution of products from Avery Dennison manufacturing sites located primarily in Asia, including China and South Korea. It is equipped to slit adhesive and label materials to meet the requirements of individual customers and it will also perform customized slit processing for winding and packaging products.

"This new center will serve as an additional distribution hub in the region and enable Avery Dennison to more quickly and efficiently deliver high-quality value-engineered products to customers all over the Asia Pacific area,” said John C. Quinn, vice president and general manager of Avery Dennison Roll Materials Asia Pacific. “Close proximity to our customers allows us to work directly with them to develop worldwide solutions. Our aim is to help our customers strengthen their capabilities and be well positioned to grow when the global economy improves,"

To support Asia's strong and growing importance in the global economy, Avery Dennison significantly increased investment in the region to more than US $45 million in 2008, including the installation of Asia's largest coating plant in Guangzhou, China and the opening of a new production facility in Pune, India. With its new distribution center in Japan, Avery Dennison Rolls Materials now has more than 30 facilities across the Asia Pacific region. Avery Dennison employs approximately 18,000 people in the Asia Pacific region.

Phase two of Avery Dennison Japan's growth initiative includes the establishment of a second distribution center north of the Kanto area. Site selection should be complete by the end of this year.
