US multinational firm opens new facility in Cabuyao

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine unit of a US multinational company opened a new facility in Cabuyao, Laguna, allowing the firm to meet increasing demand for its leading brands globally.

A senior executive of Procter & Gamble Distributing (Philippines) Inc. told reporters that the company’s facility—considered as the biggest and most advanced in Asia— is part of its commitment to strengthen its presence in the Philippines.

The new distribution center expands the current capacity of P&G warehouses by 50 percent, enabling the firm to handle 60,000 additional pallets of finished goods, company president and general manager James M. Lafferty said.

Located in a 22-hectare lot inside the Light Industry and Science Park, the facility makes 75,000 cases of various brands everyday—some of which are exported—and employs over 400 workers.
