Jong KNCV regularly organizes visits to companies and institutes. By organizing such visits, we try to strengthen the bond between university and industry and we offer young chemists the possibility to broaden their horizon of (job) possibilities within industry. In previous years, we have visited Heineken, BASF, Labmakelaar and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).
Lucky us, we have arranged another company visit: this year, on Thursday the 19th of May, we will be welcomed on the premises of Avery Dennison at Oegstgeest!
Avery Dennison is a materials science and manufacturing company specialized in the design and manufacture of a wide variety of labeling and functional materials. The company’s products and solutions, which are used in nearly every major industry, include pressure-sensitive materials for labels and graphic applications; tapes and other bonding solutions for industrial and medical applications; tags, labels and embellishments for clothing; and radio frequency identification (RFID) solutions serving the clothing industry and other markets. Hence, Avery Dennison is a company with a broad focus on applied chemistry and innovation, producing a wide range of versatile products.
