Amcor to build packaging plant in RP

Amcor Flexibles Asia Pacific announces it will build a multi-million dollar flexible packaging plant in the Philippines. The new plant will manufacture high performance packaging for a leading multinational consumer brand. This investment builds on the existing strategic customer partnership and delivers direct in-country production thereby improving Amcor’s speed-to-market in the Filipino market. The plant is expected to be fully operational in 2016.

Amcor is dedicated to helping our customers win in their respective marketplaces and building strong strategic relationships. The support from an important multinational customer for this new investment, including a multi-year supply agreement, is testament to the success of this approach.

Ralf K. Wunderlich, president of Amcor Flexibles Asia Pacific says, “Emerging Asia remains an important focus for Amcor Flexibles and with 38 plants in eight countries today, our presence in the Asia Pacific region will continue to grow both organically and through acquisitions. Our growth is supported by a solid foundation of delivering high quality, safe and innovative packaging.”

The partnership in establishing a plant in one of Asia’s key markets will allow Amcor to support the growth in the Philippines and bring benefits to the local community Amcor operates in.
