Nestlé Thailand searches for trained staffs to work at the company’s new 5 billion baht worth factory which opened in June and covers an area of 1,010,430-sq-ft.
Regarding the job notification at the website, the company is searching for all different kind of positions like various engineers, production managers, quality assurance directors, sales managers and nutritionists.
“With an investment of 5 billion baht, the new Purina factory reinforces Nestlé’s long-term commitment to doing business in Thailand while creating quality job opportunities for the local community,” said Victor Seah, chairman and chief executive of Nestlé Indochina.
After installing a 50,000 m² production facility worth 950 million baht in 2010 in the Rayong province, the lately opened Purina Petcare factory is the second one in that area. The existing facility mainly produces ALPO dry dog food and Friskies cat food for export to Asian countries will continue operations with 150 employees.
The new facility will concentrate on the production of wet, single-serve Purina cat food products like Purina One, Pro Plan, Felix and Fancy Feast for export to Thailand, Japan, Australia and New Zealand and Southeast Asia.
“Prioritizing exports to the Japanese pet food market demonstrates the new factory’s capability to produce premium products for the most demanding Japanese consumers,” stated Jean Grunenwald, CEO of Nestlé Purina PetCare Asia, Oceania and Africa.
Seah explained that the location of the factory makes sense from a strategical viewpoint to assure accessibility to raw materials and to supply the products across the Asian and Oceanian region, especially the ASEAN area “which is an emerging market with tremendous potential for our pet care business,” he added.
The new high-end facility supports the company’s sustainability goals by using automation tools for decarbonization and recyclable packaging. Furthermore, the factory features a high-speed automated filling line, automated vehicles and robot packers packing more than 720 packs per minute.
