On 7 Jan 2020, Amazon Papyrus Chemicals, a leading Asia-based specialty chemicals company, has announced the official operation of their brand new Thailand production and integrated office facilities at Bangkok, Thailand. Chief Executive Officer, Mike Grundy was interviewed and introduced Amazon’s latest expansion to support their impressive sales growth in Asia. He mentioned this as an important investment for Amazon to support the future growth of their businesses in South-East Asia countries and to support their ever growing customer base.
During the Grand Opening, Mike expressed his excitement and important decision of their investment to build production capability and footprint in Asia. The new Thailand Plant was designed with over 600MT/month capacity by one shift and would support both local sales and export to other Asia countries. Amazon built the new plant with environmental and sustainability in mind. Thus, it has built the plant to maximize use of natural light, automatic air ventilation fans, solid waste baler, waste water collection system and energy saving air conditioning. The new Thailand plant has demonstrated the implementation and support of Amazon’s social responsibilities and sustainability business practices.
Amazon has also incorporated a Customer Analytic laboratory and a sophisticated QA/QC lab in the facilities to better support our customers in Thailand and the rest of Asia. Finally, Mike emphasized that Amazon will continue to invest and is seeking to expand their production footprint and upgrade their India plant in near future. This will support their strong business growth and development into other specialized industries besides Pulp and Paper.
