Procter & Gamble highlighted in ADEDC’s '#MadeInAlbanyGA'

Albany, Ga. – Procter & Gamble, one of Albany’s largest manufacturing employers, takes the spotlight as this month’s “#MadeInAlbanyGA” feature, an industry marketing campaign produced by the Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission.

Albany’s P&G plant, the producer of Bounty paper towels and Charmin toilet tissue, both billion-dollar brands for the company, currently employees an estimated 650 associates and is preparing to add another 40 to that total by Summer 2017.

“P&G’s addition of 40 new employees makes a big statement, not only about Albany-Dougherty County’s suitability as a manufacturing location, but also about the capability of our workforce,” says ADEDC President Justin Strickland. “The Albany plant has always been a valuable contributor to the P&G global network and the upcoming expansion will only further solidify that.”

Albany’s P&G plant is the primary supplier of Bounty and Charmin products to the Southeastern United States and Puerto Rico.

In addition to its production role, P&G Albany is also a development site for Charmin products, responsible for gauging consumer needs and translating those needs into product innovation.

The #MadeInAlbanyGA campaign, which features an existing industry each month, is an expansion on the award-winning video of the same title, produced by the ADEDC in 2014. The expanded 2016-2017 campaign includes both print and digital components, which can be seen on the ADEDC’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages, and on its Web site, choosealbany.com.
