Procter & Gamble Philippines has announced its plan to expand their operations in the Philippines which costs more than $60 million or Php 2.5 billion. The expansion will be the answer to the growing demands of products that P&G produce and will ensure 100 jobs.
“We are [expanding] our Cabuyao plant,” said Robert McDonald, chairman, president and chief executive of P&G. The Cabuyao plant is one of the biggest and most advanced Procter & Gamble factories in Asia.
Siddik Tetik, general manager of P&G Philippines, said the company controlled over 30 percent of the market, with 2009 sales reaching over P30 billion.
P&G began operations in the country in 1935 when the company expanded its international presence with the acquisition of Philippine Manufacturing Co., making it the company’s first operations in the Far East and the third oldest globally.
P&G Philippines manufactures and distributes over 20 brands across 15 product categories. These include Tide, Safeguard, Pampers, Ariel, Always, Whisper, Pantene, Mach3, Bounty, Dawn, Gain, Pringles, Downy, Oral B, Olay, Head and Shoulders, Wella, Gillette, Braun and Fusion.
