Procter & Gamble plans to expand its manufacturing base with a new facility in West Virginia. The consumer products giant will build a plant in Berkeley County, which is in the northeast corner of the state, near Hagerstown, Maryland.
According to a company press release, the one million square foot facility will manufacture multiple P&G brands once it's operational in 2017. It will also be the second new domestic plant built since 1971. P&G currently has 29 plants in 21 states.
