Tetra Pak will open a closures facility at its straw factory in Thailand.
The global packaging giant will spend €24 million (£20 million) boosting its capacity at the factory in Rayong, on the North-East Gulf of Thailand, which could make 3 billion carton closures annually.
Michael Zacka, Vice-President, Tetra Pak Asia, 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.”
