HCMC, Dec 3, 2012 – Procter & Gamble (P&G) broke ground for its Pampers manufacturing plant expansion in the southern province of Binh Duong’s Ben Cat District. The company said that the expansion was part of the company’s plan to increase its capital by US$80 million in three years. The expansion would increase its capacity by 200% compared to the current capacity.
In 2009, P&G developed the first category of Pampers Baby Care plant at VSIP 2 Industrial Zone in Binh Duong Province with initial capital of US$45 which uses the latest technology to manufacture diapers.
To meet the increasing demands at home and abroad, the company continues to invest an additional US$80 million in the next three years to expand the plant.
Vietnam is one of the priority investment markets of P&G as the group’s operation in Vietnam has seen the highest growth rate of the global P&G in three consecutive years. Up to now, the investment of P&G in Vietnam has tripled to reach more than US$200 million in 2012 and will continue to increase in the coming years.
P&G exports more than 30% of its production to markets such as Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, India and ASEAN.
