Avery Dennison has taken steps to ensure a steady supply of products and reliable local support to UK customers after Brexit by increasing stocks of raw materials in its Cramlington distribution centre.

Avery Dennison has increased investment in its Cramlington Concept Lab in North East England, and continues to build upon its established local network while expanding partnerships with UK customers. The company has already established customs clearance arrangements at the facility.

‘With over three thousand unique material combinations available with a low minimum order quantity for small batch deliveries, our customers are able to experiment with label applications.’ said Darren O’Carroll, UK country manager at Avery Dennison, ‘They can choose the optimal material for each individual application, instead of getting stuck trying to make a single bulk order work on every part of the supply chain.’

The firm’s UK supply network, combined with its full-service research lab in Cramlington, allows customers to go from concept to project in 10 working days, with a minimum order of just 1000 square meters. UK customers also have access to the R&D teams at the Cramlington Concept Lab for custom research and material recommendations.
