Avery Dennison Corp. marked its 75th anniversary by having chairman, president and CEO Dean A. Scarborough and the company’s leadership team ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange.

Avery Dennison was founded in June, 1935, by R. Stanton Avery, who developed the world’s first self-adhesive label and label-making machinery. Sales during his first six months of selling removable price stickers to gift shops and other retailers totaled $1,391.

The company is planning commemorative events throughout the year.
