The Baby & Family Care plant opened in 2011 and currently has a workforce of about 240 employees. The plan supports the Bounty, Pampers and Luvs brands. It is thought to encompass 600,000 square feet on 750 acres.
“We continue to greatly value our partnership with GOED and Box Elder County,” says Joe Tomon, plant manager of the P&G’s Box Elder facility. “Our expansion is a result of consumer and customer demand, and we couldn’t be more pleased to meet that demand with the excellent workforce of Box Elder County.”
Procter & Gamble may earn up to 30% of the new state taxes it will pay over the 20-year life of the agreement in the form of a Utah Legislature-authorized Economic Development Tax Increment Finance (EDTIF) tax credit. The GOED Board has approved a post-performance tax credit not to exceed $4,191,954. Each year that Procter & Gamble meets the criteria in its contract with the state, it will earn a portion of the total tax credit.
“Procter & Gamble has been a steady growth agent in Utah. The company started production here in 2011 and invested again in spring 2018, and continues today to expand its state-of-the-art facility,” said Theresa A. Foxley, president and CEO of the Economic Development Corporation of Utah. “With wages above the county average, these are high-quality manufacturing jobs for Box Elder County.”
“This expansion will create hundreds of new high-paying manufacturing jobs in Box Elder County,” said Val Hale, GOED’s executive director. “This is a big win for Utah as we continue to help build our rural counties and create more jobs in these areas.”
