Pampers plant opens in Hungary

April 23, 2014

Will serve consumers across this important region for P&G.

March 11 marked the official grand opening of a new Pampers plant in Gyöngyös, Hungary—just 16 months after P&G broke ground at the site.

More than 180 people—from government leaders to suppliers, as well as P&G executives and employees—attended the opening. In his public remarks, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban praised P&G’s contribution to the Hungarian society and economy, and expressed his appreciation to P&G as an investor and partner.

P&G says its first conversations about building the plant began as recent as the fall of 2012 and due to the leadership and commitment of the local project team, the Gyöngyös plant started its first operations in December 2013.

As the second P&G manufacturing facility in Hungary—a feminine care plant was there first—the plant will serve consumers in various markets across Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans.

The Gyöngyös plant has already received the Biggest Greenfield Investment of 2012 award from Hungary's Ministry of National Economy, with a Zero Waste to Landfill certificate. The feminine care plant in Hungary was the very first P&G site to ever achieve Zero Waste to Landfill status.
