Avery Dennison has officially opened its new distribution centre in Moorabbin, Victoria, Melbourne. The centre is designed to meet the increasing and changing needs of graphics converters and installers in Australia and New Zealand. The new distribution centre in Melbourne demonstrates the company’s commitment to creating a more sustainable world, says a source from the company. This distribution facility is not only built to empower the company to be more responsive to changing customer needs, but it is also purpose-built for sustainability. As Avery Dennison grows, they shall continue to be a force for good to the graphic arts industry, stakeholders, and local communities.
The newly opened Melbourne distribution centre has a 152kW solar system installed on-site, a rainwater collection system for reuse in toilets and irrigation, and LED lighting throughout the office and warehouse. During the construction of the distribution centre, low volatile organic compounds (VOC) paint, carpets and sealants were used. To reduce the need for water and electricity, the centre uses recycled water in its sprinkler tank and has skylights in the office and warehouse to let in natural light. Several key operational and business functions including Sales, Customer Service, Technical Support, Laboratory, and Warehousing are located in the facility.
