State Representative Jim Butler (R-Oakwood) today applauded the announcement that the Procter & Gamble Company has chosen to establish a distribution center in Union, which will lead to the creation of 800 new jobs through third party customization and logistics providers.
“Procter & Gamble’s decision to locate 800 new jobs in the Dayton region should indicate to the local, state, national and international business communities that Ohio’s economy is moving in the right direction,” said Representative Butler. “This is tremendous news for our community, and I’d like to commend the Dayton Development Coalition and JobsOhio for their steadfast dedication to our state’s prosperity.”
JobsOhio, the Dayton Development Coalition, Montgomery County and the City of Union worked together to ensure that the company had the required infrastructure in place to support the $89 million, 1 million-square-foot facility, according to a press release from JobsOhio. Ohio was in competition with several other U.S. locations for the distribution center.
The new Procter & Gamble facility is expected to be operational in 2015.
