P&G Thailand considers expanding production next year as company expects growth in Asia, recovery from recent floods will offer opportunities

LOS ANGELES , November 10, 2011 () – Procter & Gamble Manufacturing (Thailand) Co.’s Managing Director Raul Falcon said the company is considering expanding production at its factory in Thailand’s Chachoengsao province, the Bangkok Post reported Nov. 11.

Falcon said P&G Thailand was already running at full production capacity at the site, and an expansion would help support Asia’s growing demand.

Although the recent floods are expected to drop consumer purchasing power for the company, as homeowners pursue home repairs and renovations, Falcon said over 50% of the factory’s capacity goes to export markets, according to the article.

The company is also planning several marketing activities beginning in January 2012 to help locals recover from the recent floods.
