Procter & Gamble Paper Products Expands Box Elder County, Utah, Operations

Procter & Gamble Paper Products Company will expand its current operations in Box Elder County, Utah. The $400 million project is expected to create 100 jobs over the next 20 years.

Established in 2010 the facility supports P&G’s Paper, Baby Care, and Feminine Care businesses.

“We are excited to expand our operations in Box Elder County to meet the growing demand for our products and serve our consumers,” said Seth Garner, senior director of Product Supply Manufacturing, Box Elder Plant. “We’re grateful to the Box Elder County community, a place we have called home since 2010, for their continued support, and we look forward to many years of partnership and growth.”

To assist with the expansion the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity awarded Procter & Gamble Paper Products Company a temporary, marginal tax reduction. The post-performance corporate incentive is part of the Legislature’s Rural Economic Development Tax Increment Financing program.

“Procter & Gamble is a well-known company with brands that are in almost all Utah households,” noted Ryan Starks, executive director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity. “We’re excited they have decided to expand in Box Elder County, and we wish the company success as they continue to grow.”

P&G may receive up to 10% of the additional state taxes it will pay over the 20-year life of the agreement in the form of a Utah Legislature-authorized Rural Economic Development Tax Increment Financing (REDTIF) tax credit. Each year P&G meets the criteria in its contract with the state, it will qualify for a portion of the total tax credit.

“We are thoroughly impressed by Procter & Gamble’s continued investment in Box Elder County and their commitment to being a world-class corporate citizen,” added Scott Cuthbertson, president and CEO of EDCUtah. “The company’s ongoing diligence in resource stewardship and quality job growth makes them an ideal partner in Utah’s goal for economic prosperity.”
