Tetra Pak is building a new €24 million plant at its Rayong site in Thailand, dedicated to producing closures for carton packaging.
Expected to come into operation in 2018, the new plant will be capable of producing more than 3 billion closures every year.
Michael Zacka, Cluster Vice President, Tetra Pak South Asia, East Asia and Oceania (SAEA&O), 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."
