Tetra Pak will invest €24 million in a new plant at its Rayong site in Thailand, as it seeks to keep pace with demand for beverage closures.
The upgraded site will be capable of producing more than 3 billion closures every year for carton packaging. It will add around 60 jobs when the new plant opens in early 2018.
The new production facility will be located within the company’s existing Straws and Strips Plant in Rayong, southeast of Bangkok.
Tetra Pak South Asia, East Asia and Oceania vice-president Michael Zacka said: “The new production facility will ensure faster delivery for customers across the region, offering a broad range of exciting closures that meet consumer demand for functionality and convenience.”
“It’s another sign of the confidence we have in this region, and our commitment to putting our customers’ success at the heart of everything we do. Together with the packaging material factory that we will open in Vietnam in 2019, our fourth in southern Asia alone, our ability to serve customers in this exciting part of the world is growing stronger all the time.”
