P&G Relocates Global Beauty Expansion of campus and operations makes Mason home to largest P&G R&D facility worldwide. The City of Mason is home to the largest Research & Development facility in Procter & Gamble’s global portfolio after a four-year, $400+ million expansion of the Mason Business and Beauty Innovation Center. The addition of a 500,000-square-foot expansion brings the site to a total of 2 million square feet and makes the innovation center P&G’s largest R&D campus in the world. The expanded facility is home to 25 percent of the company’s researchers after the signiﬁcant expansion. “Uniting our Beauty technical community under one roof will drive even better consumer solutions,” Kathy Fish, P&G’s chief research, development, and innovation officer, told the Cincinnati Business Courier. The world-class campus features state-of-the-art facilities that allow researchers to gain ﬁrst-hand insights from consumers in real-world environments such as saunas, salons, bathrooms, and kitchens. Consolidating some of their core business units to Mason will allow the company to streamline research and innovation of products. The new buildings include a custom lab alongside agile ofﬁces to foster teamwork, and technologically
advanced equipment that is expected to yield new and improved P&G products. The City has continued its investment to remain an international business place where we prioritize business innovation, open communication, and partnership. P&G’s investment and partnership are a major driver in the continued growth of the City and feeds our robust Mason bio and science ecosystem. What took years to build took careful and deliberate planning and collaboration between P&G and the City of Mason. Now that it is complete, the center adds to Mason’s growing biohealth cluster with nearly $1.8 million in annual tax revenue for the city. The innovation center will bring 1,350 new jobs to Mason with an average annual salary of more than $188,000. By 2021, it is expected that the new building will be home to more than 3,000 employees. “You see around here all the different capabilities that we built into this facility that enable people to collaborate and communicate to drive our Beauty business forward,” Bill Vonderhaar, P&G’s program manager for capital projects involving global facilities and real estate, told the Cincinnati Business Courier in May. “We wanted to build a space that was state-of-the-art and that set Beauty up for success for decades to come.”
