Avery Dennison Corp to shut down Greensboro, 59 jobs lost


Avery Dennison Corp. is planning to permanently shut down its Greensboro manufacturing facility and lay off 59 employees beginning in March.

The company, based in Pasadena, Calif., filed a notice with the N.C. Department of Commerce as part of a requirement by the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act.
Avery Dennison’s letter to the state said the company expects to permanently eliminate job positions ranging from customer service representatives and machine operators to material handlers and managers.

The company said it will close its facility located at 2100 Summit Ave. and relocate remaining operations to 2025 16th St. in Greensboro.

Company officials could not be immediately be reached about the reasoning behind the closure or what the company’s plans are for the location on 16th Street.

Avery Dennison makes a variety of products including pressure-sensitive labeling materials, graphics imaging media and retail apparel ticketing and branding systems.
