Published on 2008-04-02. Author : SpecialChem

PASADENA, Calif. -- Avery Dennison Corporation announced the acquisition of DM Label Group, a manufacturer of high-quality woven labels with manufacturing facilities in six countries. DM Label Group is headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan.

"The acquisition of DM Label Group reflects our commitment to providing the best, quickest and most consistent service to our customers, wherever they are located around the world," said Dean A. Scarborough, president and chief executive officer of Avery Dennison. "The DM Label Group strengthens our woven label product line and reinforces our presence in Asia, a major sourcing area for the global apparel, retail branding and marking industry."

The acquisition of DM Label Group complements Avery Dennison's acquisition and integration of Paxar into its Retail Information Services (RIS) group last year. RIS is a global leader in providing brand identification and supply chain management solutions primarily for manufacturers and retailers, including tag and label design and printing; inventory and shipment tracking; and data management systems.

"We have had a long and productive relationship with Avery Dennison," said James Hsu, president and chief executive officer of DM Label Group. "Now as part of Avery Dennison, we have the opportunity to offer customers an increased product range and the global scale, local presence and resources to help retailers, brand owners and factories meet their business goals."

"The DM Label Group acquisition and its expanded woven label product line enhances our ability to create superior value for our customers and provide increased speed and responsiveness in delivering products and services to our customers," says Terry Hemmelgarn, group vice president of Avery Dennison's Retail Information Services Group.

Founded in 1960 by the Hsu family, DM Label Group has 11 manufacturing facilities in six countries, including China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan and the United States. Its core products include woven labels, printed labels, accessory tapes, hang tags, heat transfer labels and "skin touch" fabric ribbon tape. Hsu will serve as a vice president and general manager, reporting to Terry Hemmelgarn. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Avery Dennison is a global leader in pressure-sensitive labeling materials, retail tag, ticketing and branding systems, and office products. Based in Pasadena, Calif., Avery Dennison is a FORTUNE 500 Company with 2007 sales of $6.3 billion. Avery Dennison employs more than 30,000 individuals in over 60 countries, who develop, manufacture and market a wide range of products for both consumer and industrial markets. Products offered by Avery Dennison include: Fasson-brand self-adhesive materials; Avery Dennison brand products for the retail and apparel industries; Avery-brand office products and graphics imaging media; specialty tapes, peel-and-stick postage stamps, and labels for a wide variety of automotive, industrial and durable goods applications.
