WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) released the following statement regarding Procter & Gamble’s announcement that it will build a $500 million manufacturing facility at the Tabler Station Business Park in Berkeley County, West Virginia. The project is reported to create more than 1,000 construction jobs and 700 permanent jobs.
“This is tremendous news for the hard-working people of West Virginia who deserve the opportunity for a good job, especially in the Eastern Panhandle where residents will have a chance to work closer to home. Procter & Gamble’s decision to build a major manufacturing facility at the Tabler Station Business Park speaks volumes about the potential of West Virginia’s manufacturing sector and the need to invest in infrastructure projects. Ten years ago, I was proud to help obtain a federal grant for infrastructure work at the Tabler Station Business Park. I am even more proud today to see that investment led to such a major economic development project. I will continue fighting for infrastructure investments that will strengthen our economy, create jobs, and put West Virginia on the map as a manufacturing destination. Welcome to West Virginia, Procter & Gamble.”
