PepsiCo invests USD 100 million in Romanian facility
PepsiCo, Inc. is investing USD 100 million into its facility in Popesti-Leordeni, Romania. The expansion project will improve three production lines and add an automated warehouse, in addition to other automation capabilities.
“PepsiCo has been operating and investing in Romania for almost 30 years and we remain committed to further developing the business in the country. As a production and distribution center for the Central and Eastern European markets, Romania represents an essential market in Europe”, said Silviu Popovici, chief executive officer for PepsiCo Europe.
Construction on the Popesti-Leordeni facility is expected to be completed in 2024 and will double the plant’s current production capacity. The company’s investment comes just after it finished a 5-year, $40-million development plan at its Dragomiresti factory, bringing PepsiCo’s investment total in Romania to over USD 320 million.
