Pandora opens state-of-the art factory in Thailand

Jewellery brand Pandora has officially opened its new factory in Northern Thailand.

The facility in Lamphun near Chiang Mai is the first in a series planned initiatives by Pandora to meet increasing demand.

Anders Colding Friis, Pandora president and chief executive, said: “Over the next years, we will expand production capacity at our current site in Bangkok further, investing a total of DKK 1.8 billion in the period 2015 to 2019.”

Combining traditional craftsmanship and modern workflow, the factory will eventually employ up to 5,000 people. Pandora said its innovative design will facilitate a more complex production setup to enable it to expand its product range while improving lead time.

Senior vice president Thomas Touborg, who is responsible for production at Pandora, said: “Our consumer’s increasing demands and expectations on improved flexibility are met by our new facility in Lamphun, where craftsmanship walks hand in hand with highly effective LEAN-oriented production principles creating a state-of-art production system.”

The company expects the new production setup to offer some of the best working conditions and most modern production facilities of its kind in Asia.

“The facility will set new standards for the jewellery industry in terms of scale, speed, green profile and modernity,” explained Lars Nielsen, general manager of the facility.

“The high standards in the new facility not only mean significant cost and energy savings, they also ensure that Pandora can fully meet future demands for sustainability from consumers all over the world.”
