At ADX Labs, Avery Dennison engages apparel and footwear brands around the globe, co-creating the next breakthrough solutions. ADX Labs will launch new collections and solutions biannually across digital production techniques, external embellishments, packaging, and automation.

The newly-launched ADX Lab Ningbo is Avery Dennison’s fourth ADX Lab across the globe, joining the innovation and experience hubs in Norway, Italy, and Panyu, China. Avery Dennison will expand its hub in the US in January next year.

During the ADX Lab Ningbo launch event, Avery Dennison’s revealed its newest portfolio for external embellishments. The collection was inspired by seasonal trends and featured sustainable production techniques, materials, and designs.

The results are over 90 bespoke graphic technique combinations – covering heat transfer labels, woven, embroideries, and spanning performance, lifestyle, and team sports.

Ally Feng, vice president and general manager, Greater China, Avery Dennison RBIS, adds: “By incorporating innovation throughout the process to product offerings, our customers are empowered to scale their businesses in more creative, diverse and personalised ways
