New Procter & Gamble Warehouse and Distribution Center Announced for Southampton Township, Says Kauffman
7/18/2013

HARRISBURG – State Rep. Rob Kauffman (R-Cumberland/Franklin) today applauded the announcement by Proctor & Gamble Distributing LLC that it will be expanding its operations in Franklin County.

“Franklin County has had the pleasure of having several announcements of new or expanding businesses this year within its borders,” said Kauffman. “The county is clearly growing in terms of population which provides a great employee base for these companies. We are also in an optimal location for the transportation of goods to area regions. I am pleased companies, such as Proctor & Gamble, recognize the value of locating to our area and that newly passed state laws are making it easier for businesses to set up and expand operations in the Commonwealth.”

According to Procter & Gamble, the company has begun construction of a new 1.7 million-square-foot warehouse and distribution center in Southampton Township, Franklin County, projected to be completed next summer. Once fully operational, the facility is expected to have in place four to six Procter & Gamble employees and at least 960 contractors.
 
Kauffman noted that Proctor & Gamble is the fourth company to make an announcement of new or expanded job opportunities in Franklin County this year. The combined impact of these announcements is more than 1,000 new jobs for area residents.
