Adriano Maturino, Grooming Manufacturing Senior Director
Adriano is operating P&G’s first fully sustainable manufacturing facility in Latin America, Planta Milenio. He leads 2,000 employees who supply Shave Care products to North America and Latin America. Located in Irapuato, Mexico, 100% of all the energy needed to manufacture blades and razors is renewable energy from a wind farm.

At the Milenio Plant, Maturino leads efforts that contribute to P&G’s 2030 Ambition such as implementing monitoring and analytics digital solutions for production lines, utilizing energy smart sectioning for utilities, and educating employees to identify and eliminate sustainability defects like air leaks that can lead to unnecessary energy consumption.


While advancing sustainability efforts is important, Maturino is most proud of his work during the COVID crisis. During this time, he led P&G’s Manaus Plant in Brazil in implementing a strategy the team called, “For Us, For Our Families and For Manaus.” With this initiative, Maturino helped roll out safety protocols for employees and supported the city of Manaus with a donation of 410 oxygen cylinders, over 1,000 N95 masks, 42 mechanical respirators and 1 mini oxygen generation plant for hospitals.

Maturino is passionate about innovation and manufacturing because they give him an opportunity to further develop his growth mindset, bring forth new ideas and envision what may come in the future. “Be curious, ask questions. The only wrong question is the one you are not asking.”
