P&G Indonesia has opened its new plant in Jakarta and says it will invest another $100 million in a second plant next to its new unit in Karawang, West Java. P&G says the second factory, once completed, would make P&G’s Karawang plant the company’s largest facility in Southeast Asia.
The new plant will primarily produce Pampers diapers for the local market, but will also serve as the source of exports needed to balance supply and demand in the region, and be a regional hub for raw materials supplies.
Under construction since 2011, the plant is now ready to be fully operational and serve the growing demand for P&G's products in Indonesia and Asia—approximately 8 million Indonesian babies alone within the next five years.
As one of our largest plants in the region, the Jakarta Plant has also earned Silver LEED Certification—a criteria established by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), the world’s leading green building standard and the highest environmental certification system developed by U.S. Green Building Council.
