Procter & Gamble plans new jobs for central Pa.

Procter & Gamble plans to bring nearly 1,000 new jobs to central Pennsylvania next year when it opens a new warehouse and distribution center near Shippensburg.

The company has started construction on the 1.7 million square-foot facility in Southampton Township, Franklin County.

Work is projected to wrap up next summer, and when fully operational the facility is expected to have four to six Procter & Gamble employees and at least 960 contractors.

Governor Tom Corbett released a statement calling Thursday's announcement “great news for Pennsylvania and Franklin County.”

“Procter & Gamble's decision to create a new facility in the
commonwealth will result in one of the largest job announcements so far
in 2013,” Corbett said. “A warehouse and distribution center of this
size is projected to create more than 960 new jobs and various
construction positions over the next few years.”
