Kolkata, (IANS) Direct selling FMCG company Amway India Friday said that its first manufacturing plant, to be built at a cost of Rs.550 crore, would be ready in Tamil Nadu by early 2015.

“The new manufacturing facility in Tamil Nadu should be ready by early 2015,” Amway India managing director and chief executive William S. Pinckney said here.

Pinckney said the company has already signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Tamil Nadu government for the new plant, which would produce healthcare, nutritional and beauty products.

He, however, declined to disclose the location of the upcoming facility.
