Avery Dennison Performance Tapes has announced plans to expand its Painesville, Ohio, manufacturing facility by approximately 32,000 sq ft. The expansion will generate more than 25 full-time jobs in the Northeast Ohio region and support new and existing pressure-sensitive specialty tape customers in the automotive, general industrial, packaging, and building and construction industries, among others. Groundbreaking is scheduled for September 2021, with a completion date of mid-2022. Product manufacturing is targeted for July 2022.

The expanded facility will house a new energy-efficient coater and production line to manufacture complex, multiple-layer pressure-sensitive tapes, along with supporting equipment for ventilation, air-recycling, positive air pressure, and controlled humidification. According to Avery Dennison Performance Tapes, the added manufacturing capacity will further enhance the company’s ability to develop and deliver high-quality pressure-sensitive adhesives solutions for both standard and novel customer applications.

“We serve multiple industries, with varying needs,” said Steve Flannery, vice president and general manager of Performance Tapes North America. “We are investing for the future to support our customers’ growth and investing for today to reliably supply them with exceptionally high quality products.”

“Avery Dennison is a long-time employer in Northeast Ohio,” Flannery said. “We are extremely excited for our continuing involvement as a good neighbor and an important part of the community’s economic vitality.”

According to Bill Koehler, CEO of Team NEO, “Avery Dennison is a great example of how manufacturing companies thrive in the Northeast Ohio Region. We are grateful they chose to expand in Painesville and look forward to working with our local partners and JobsOhio to ensure their continued success here.”
