Church & Dwight Co. Expands Vitamin Manufacturing Facility In Jackson Township, Pennsylvania

12/09/2013
Church & Dwight Co., Inc., a global manufacturer of household and personal care products including its trademark brand Arm & Hammer, will expand its operations in York County, Pennsylvania, creating approximately 180 new jobs. The company will invest nearly $55 million to construct a new state-of-the-art gummy form vitamin manufacturing, packaging and distribution facility in Jackson Township.

“The economic development assistance package from Pennsylvania will jumpstart the expansion of our gummy vitamin production facilities in Jackson Township,” said James R. Craigie, Church & Dwight’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The gummy vitamin category is rapidly developing and this investment will play an important part in helping Church & Dwight Co. achieve its long-term goals for revenue and earnings growth, as well as cash flow. We are also pleased to create 180 new jobs that will have a positive impact on the community.”

“We are actively working with companies – from small businesses to major manufacturers– to help them create family sustaining jobs throughout Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is open for business and I welcome Church & Dwight’s continued investment in our commonwealth and its greatest asset - our people,” Gov. Tom Corbett said.

The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team. The Department of Community and Economic Development partnered with Church & Dwight Co. on a number of grants including an $86,580 Guaranteed Free Training grant to be used to train its new workforce.

Additional grants include a $900,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant that facilitates investment and job creation and $540,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits.
