Procter & Gamble Distributing, LLC, an American multinational consumer goods corporation, is planning to invest $205 million in a new distribution facility in Jackson. This new location for the company will create 350 new jobs in Butts County.

“It says a lot when household names like Procter & Gamble repeatedly choose Georgia to do business,” said Governor Brian Kemp. “My administration has been laser-focused on creating jobs and opportunities in rural Georgia, and I am confident that hardworking Georgians in Butts County, at the Georgia Ports Authority, and along every other step of the way will make sure Procter & Gamble’s products get out the door and to the market.”

Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, the Procter & Gamble Company specializes in a wide range of personal healthcare and hygiene products. The company’s portfolio includes numerous household name brands. P&G also operates a manufacturing facility in Albany and a distribution center outside of Atlanta.

“We are excited to expand our footprint in Georgia to better meet demand for our products and serve our consumers,” said Ignacio Arranz, Senior Vice President, P&G Physical Distribution Innovation. “We are grateful to the Butts County community for their support and look forward to many years of partnership and growth.”

P&G’s new distribution center will be at 950 Logistics Parkway in Jackson. The state-of-the-art, automated facility will be more than 1 million square feet once completed.

“On the behalf of the Board of Commissioners and our Development Authority, we are proud to welcome Procter & Gamble as our newest corporate citizen to Butts County,” said Board of Commissioners’ Chair Joe Brown. “Their investment represents a significant milestone in Butts County, and we look forward to a long and mutually rewarding relationship. I also want to thank our local delegation and representatives for their commitment to our community and supporting quality growth.”
