Washington DC Chapter: Tablers Station Plant Visit – Rescheduled – Date TBD, Check This Page for Updates

This event will not be held on March 16, 2024.  When the event is rescheduled,  this page will provide updates.

 

In 2018, P&G began manufacturing Bounce at its new $500 million plant in Berkeley County, W.Va., which is just the second new P&G site in the United States since 1971.  The site has more than 2 million square feet under roof, which is equal to about nine Manhattan city blocks, according to former P&G CEO David Taylor. It sits on 450 acres of previously vacant land, and employs over 1500 full-time P&G employees.  “We’re constructing more cost-effective, multi-category manufacturing sites in geographically strategic locations, automating and digitizing these sites to minimize cost and maximize flexibility,” Taylor told market analysts in 2018.

We are going to be able to offer you (and perhaps your spouse/kids/guests) an exclusive private tour of the plant. The Tablers Station plant, located in the panhandle of West Virginia near the Maryland and Virginia border, is an easy 1.5 hour drive from downtown Washington, DC.  More information will be available soon.

Touring a P&G plant is an amazing experience and will provide a glimpse into cutting edge American manufacturing and the high quality of P&G’s workforce today. More details and a picture are below.  If you have any questions at this time, you can email Jeff Adler (JAdler@AdlerSolutionsLLC.com).

The plant is in Tablers Station: https://goo.gl/maps/9PXXr6NXNG42

For perspective, it is under 70 miles from Tysons Corner, and under 80 miles from Bethesda.

Tentatively, we expect to schedule the tour around 11am.  The tour should last 30-60 minutes.  After our tour, we will have an optional (but strongly encouraged) networking lunch at one of the following:

  1. A restaurant near the plant
  2. Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races (25 minutes SE of plant, with lots of good restaurant options that can easily seat a crowd)
  3. A Harpers Ferry restaurant (about 35 minutes SE of plant)
  4. A Martinsburg, WV restaurant (about 10 minutes N of plant)
