Procter & Gamble distribution to start operations

The new Procter & Gamble multi-brand distribution center in Union will start operations next week, city of Union officials said.

P&G will officially begin to receive product Feb. 3 and begin shipping product Feb. 23, according to Denise Winemiller, Union assistant city manager.

The $90 million facility at Union’s Global Logistics Air Park near the Dayton International Airport is expected to employ 1,300 workers by the end of 2015.

Westerville, Ohio-based Excel will hire and manage logistics workers for the P&G facility.

Quality Associates, a contract packaging company based in Cincinnati, will hire and manage the facility’s light manufacturing workforce.
