50 more jobs coming to Pineville

Posted: Updated:

PINEVILLE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - The Proctor & Gamble Company, along with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, have announced the company's plans to expand its workforce at its Pineville facility, which will result in 50 new full-time jobs with an average annual salary of about $61,000, plus benefits. This expansion is expected to include the construction of a new training center.

In an effort to better align its fabric care divisions, P&G will consolidate some operations from Augusta, Ga. to its Pineville facility.  LED estimates that the project will result in an additional 270 indirect jobs, in addition to the 50 direct jobs added. The Pineville facility currently manufactures products from several P&G brands, including Cheer, Gain, Dreft, and Tide Pods detergents.

"P&G is increasing its efficiency by reorganizing its North American Fabric Care manufacturing operations over the next 12 to 18 months to better serve the needs of the consumers and customers. Our facility in Alexandria will increase capacity to support the dry detergent business," said Regina Washington, Plant Manager, Proctor & Gamble - Alexandria.

In March 2012, P&G completed a $100 million expansion at its Pineville facility to enable the plant and the company to deliver one of P&G's newest products, Tide Pods, which launched in February 2012. The new expansion announced today will add to the company's existing total of 483 associates. The Pineville site, which opened in 1969, covers nearly 1 million square feet in building space on 112 acres.

To secure the expansion, the state offered P&G a performance-based grant of $3.4 million to offset a portion of the costs for new training facilities, infrastructure and equipment, as well as use of the state's Retention and Modernization Program in the amount of $0.8 million. The company also is expected to make use of the state's Quality Jobs and Industrial Tax Exemption programs. In addition to these incentives, P&G will receive a customized workforce solution from LED FastStart™ – the topped-rank, state workforce development program in the nation – to create a customized workforce recruitment program, applicant screening and training development.
