Avery Dennison Graphics Division North America of Painesville, OH,has acquired the Saturn division of the Industrial Coatings Group (ICG)/Holliston. Avery Dennison will now offer BannerLine? products that will include Saturn?, Mercury?, and Jupiter?-brand materials for large-format graphics.
The move enables Avery to expand beyond traditional pressure-sensitive print substrates, while enabling ICG/Holliston to focus on its core strengths in the bookbinding and cover markets.
According to Avery vice-president Rick Olszewski, Avery's acquisition of Saturn will enable graphics producers to better leverage their purchasing power, by acquiring a broader range of supplies from a single source.
