$100 million investment to start coming onstream next year.

Procter & Gamble will invest $100 million in a new manufacturing facility in Pakistan. The new plant, which will open next year, will make diapers and laundry detergent and is reportedly part of a company plan to build 19 production facilities in four years, its largest expansion ever.

The 25-acre facility, in Port Qasim Authority, Karachi will roll out in two phases. The first, in June 2010, will handle laundry detergent manufacturing. The second phase, diaper operations, is expected to be running by end of 2011. Combined, the project represents P&G's second Pakistan plant, and its largest investment in the country.

P&G’s existing Pakistan plant makes Pur water purifiers and soap.
