P&G Building New Manufacturing Facility in Utah

Procter & Gamble Family Care will construct a new plant in Box Elder County, Utah, in a $300 million investment that is expected to create an initial 300 new jobs. According to company officials, the new facility will produce Bounty paper towels and Charmin bathroom tissue, and will include energy and water conservation technologies in both the design and construction. Groundbreaking on the new plant is planned for early 2008, with initial production beginning in early 2010. "This facility will increase the number of skilled jobs available in northern Utah while enabling P&G to better serve consumers in the western U.S.," says Mary Lynn Ferguson-McHugh, president of P&G Family Care. The facility is the first new Family Care manufacturing facility built in the United States since 1973. Prior to the announcement, the Governer's Office of Economic Development Board approved a potential $85 million tax rebate incentive.
