DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) is building a multi-category distribution center in the city of Union to serve its Midwest customers, JobsOhio President and Chief Investment Officer John Minor announced today.
According to company officials, the new P&G facility will be operational in 2015 and is expected to bring as many as 800 jobs.
