“This is a part of a new breakthrough distribution network for all of Proctor and Gamble. … Our products will get to our customers and consumers faster. We’ll be able to reduce some costs, and importantly we take transportation miles out of the network, allowing us to operate in a more environmentally friendly network than we operate today.”

JobsOhio officials say the state was in competition with several others for this distribution center.

The state confirms that incentives were a part of the deal to bring the P&G jobs to Dayton, but officials won’t say anything more about those incentive.
