New Pampers Plant Opens in Hungary

March 11 marked the official Grand Opening of a new Pampers Plant in Gyöngyös, Hungary—just 16 months after we broke ground.

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

Our first conversations about building the plant began as recent as the fall of 2012. Thanks 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 (our Feminine Care plant being the 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. Our Feminine Care plant in Hungary was the very first P&G site to ever achieve Zero Waste to Landfill status.

We're proud of the leadership team in Hungary who made this plant a reality in such a short time, and look forward to serving more consumers across this very important region for P&G.
