CINCINNATI — Procter & Gamble announced the grand opening of its new plant in Box Elder, Utah, marking the first plant the company has built in four decades.
P&G said the plant, which also features an on-site distribution center, will handle the company's family care business of brands, which includes the Bounty, Charmin and Puffs brands. The Box Elder plant has more than 600,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space, plus 400,000 sq. ft. for its on-site distribution center, which opened last spring to ship a number of P&G products.
"We are proud to celebrate the grand opening of our new Box Elder family care plant in Utah [today] in order to enable us to better serve more consumers, more completely, across the [United States] and Canada," said Bob McDonald, P&G chairman, president and CEO. "This is just one more way we are continuing to better serve consumers through outstanding innovation and value in both developing and developed markets."
