Pandora plans to invest $157.8 million in a manufacturing expansion, including a new factory in Vietnam.

In all, the company will increase its production capacity by about 60 percent or 80 million pieces of jewelry per year. That includes 60 million pieces to be built in Vietnam and additional capacity of about 20 million pieces to be added at existing sites in Thailand.

Pandora’s long-term goals as part of its “new chapter of growth” include doubling revenue in the U.S. and tripling revenue in China from 2019 levels, according to a press release.

“We are very pleased to confirm that Pandora is back on the growth track,” said Alexander Lacik, CEO of Pandora. “We have vast untapped opportunities in our existing core business and they will drive long-term sustainable and profitable growth. Our objective is to be the largest and most desirable brand in the affordable jewellery market. And we have a strong foundation to deliver on that objective.”

Headquartered in Copenhagen, Pandora employs 26,000 people worldwide and crafts its jewelry at two LEED-certified facilities in Thailand using mainly recycled silver and gold. The jewelry is sold in more than 100 countries through 6,700 points of sale, including more than 2,600 concept stores.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
