PROCTER & GAMBLE-MIDWEST DISTRIBUTION
Procter & Gamble to locate major Midwest distribution center in southwest Ohio next year

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, May 15, 2014 4:49 PM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


Consumer products giant Procter & Gamble plans to locate a major distribution center in southwest Ohio to serve the Midwest.

A company spokesman said Thursday the $89 million, 1 million-square-foot facility will open next winter in Union, northwest of Dayton.

It's one of six vast new complexes that P&G is locating near major U.S. population centers with efficient road and rail networks. Spokesman Jeff LeRoy says the goal is to reduce corporate transportation costs and get products to customers faster.

Two Ohio companies have been tapped to operate the Union facility. Columbus-based Exel, a supply-chain logistics provider, and Cincinnati-based Quality Associates, a contract packager, are expected to employ about 800 people.

Cincinnati-based P&G is the world's largest consumer product maker. It makes such well-known brands as Tide, Pampers and Crest.
