ASV, manufacturer of all-purpose and all-season compact track loaders and skid steers, celebrates 40 years of innovative product design this year for its anniversary. The pioneer in the compact track loader market celebrated the occasion with an open house event at its Grand Rapids, Minnesota facility earlier this month. The event featured a full lineup of legacy and new ASV models, tours of the factory, food and refreshments and various family activities and giveaways.

“Talk to any of our longtime staff — and there are many — and you’ll find that the same passion for the products exists now as it did on day one,” said Tate Johnson, president of the Yanmar Compact Equipment North America, which encompasses the ASV brand. “This anniversary and today’s continually innovative ASV products are proof that the brand’s entrepreneurial spirit lives on.”

ASV’s drive for innovation has been clear since its founding in 1983. Two forerunners in the early snowmobile industry started the business, developing a pick-up-sized rubber-tracked vehicle called the Track Truck as ASV’s first product.

Avery Dennison announced that its metallized films with AD CleanFlake™ technology have been recognized by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) for HDPE and PET recycling. The company becomes the first to be recognized for offering a portfolio of metallized label solutions capable of working with the recycling systems to enable rigid plastic recycling.  

This recognition results from a study spearheaded by Avery Dennison and the APR to test the performance of larger metallized labels (30 square inches) in the recycling process. Previously, the APR only recognized metallized labels under two square inches as complying with its critical guidance for HDPE and PET recycling.
