Cigarette manufacturer Philip Morris Romania will modernize its production facility in Otopeni by installing a new energy efficient cooling plant worth EUR 1 million, the company has announced. The investment, which is part of a broader program meant to reduce environmental impact, is expected to generate a 5 percent reduction of the factory energy consumption.
Sergey Slipchenko, managing director, Philip Morris Romania and Bulgaria said that the company will continue to invest in modernizing and making the Otopeni factory more energy efficient. He added that in 2011 Philip Morris Romania reported a “record production”, 80 percent of which was exported.
Philip Morris Romania employs about 800 people, including approximately 500 who work in its Otopeni factory.
