“2009 is a very important year in the history of the company. We have good news to share and we needed an experienced partner to breathe life into our corporate communication”, said Ana-Maria Maciuca, PR Responsible PAS Romania.

“Pepsi Americas is a well known company especially through its brands. Our objective for this year is to lay out the story behind the business in Romania. It is a less visible side of the company but not necessarily a less interesting one”, said Ioana Manoiu, Managing Partner GMP PR.

Pepsi Americas entered Romanian market in 2006 when it acquired the local bottling company Quadrant Amroq Beverages which also held the distribution rights for PepsiCo and Prigat. Pepsi Americas has over 20,000 employees worldwide and operates 33 production facilities and over 185 distribution centers.
