Lock Chief Representative in China Tiger Wang attended the grand opening of the Pepsico Wuhan facility on July 10th 2012. The opening ceremony was performed by Pepsico Chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi and attended by Mr Jia Yaobin, executive vice mayor of the Wuhan Municipal Government and other leading Wuhan officials, along with members of Pepsicos senior management team for the Asian region.

The Wuhan plant is the first foods facility built by PepsiCo in China in line with the criteria established by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), the world's leading green building standard. With state-of-the-art technologies and processes, the plant is expected to use 30 percent less water and 20 percent less energy compared to the 2006 baseline for PepsiCo China Foods manufacturing plants, reducing operating costs in the long term. Three existing plants in PepsiCo's manufacturing network in China are LEED-certified: Pepsi bottling plants in Chongqing, Nanchang and Kunming.

The PepsiCo plant in Wuhan, which includes 25,000 square meters of production space, is equipped with one of the most advanced potato chip production lines in the world and has the capacity to produce approximately 15,000 tons of Lay's potato chips annually. Lay's is the world's largest food brand and China's top-selling chip brand.

In this plant there are currently 14 Lock metal detectors in operation.
