Procter & Gamble (P&G), an international FMCG concern, has increased its plans regarding its new cosmetics factory in Aleksandrow Lodzki in the Lodz Special Economic Zone (LSSE).
The company is to invest $50 million in its new plant by 2012 and employ 300 people. This will be the largest European cosmetics facility for Procter & Gamble. The company is not excluding the possibility of further expansion in that location and of increasing employment as a result. P&G’s new factory will be built on a plot of 33 ha, eight ha more than originally planned.
„We began efforts to gain the necessary permission and I hope that by October, construction will commence,” said Jacek Dziergwa, general director of P&G in Poland. „The opening is planned for the end of 2008 or beginning of 2009,” he added. P&G already owns two factories in Poland: a diapers plant in Warsaw and safety razor plant in Lodz. It also runs a distribution centre in the capital. (polishmarket.com)
