by Carlo Lorenzo J. Datu

TARLAC CITY, Jan. 15 (PIA) -- President Benigno S. Aquino III will grace tomorrow the grand opening of the D’ Luxe Bags Philippines’ manufacturing facility in barangay Sta. Rosa, Concepcion town, Tarlac.

The Chief Executive shall lead the unveiling of the marker located at the main entrance of Production Building 1 and tour the facility before heading towards the program venue to deliver his keynote speech.

A subsidiary of Hong Kong-based Luen Thai Holdings, D’ Luxe is one of the outsourced manufacturers of American firm Coach’s designer bags.

It was incorporated on December 2010 and was registered with the Board of Investments (BOI) on January 2011.

As of December 2011, D’ Luxe has 1,200 employees and is producing 90,000 to 100,000 pieces per month. On March, employment will reach 1,700 and investments will be at US$ 5 million.

The establishment of a bag manufacturing facility in Tarlac was one of Luen Thai’s commitments to the President during their September 2010 meeting in New York City.

Others were the expansion of its production plants in Mactan, Cebu and Clark Freeport. (WLB/CLJD-PIA 3)
