The Avery Dennison began operation in 1935 as Kum Kleen Products, founded by RS Avery and his wife. By 1937, the company name had changed to Avery Adhesives but it's expansion and name changes did not stop there. Before evolving into the maker of Avery labels as we know it today, the company went through several name changes before merging with the Dennison Manufacturing Company and becoming the Avery Dennison Corporation in 1990.
The company opened its first overseas subsidiary location in 1955 in the Netherlands. As its product line expanded, so did its operations around the world.
