Procter and Gamble....You Have Come A Long Way ...Baby!

It was back in 1837 that the international giant Procter & Gamble began here in Cincinnati. More specifically, it was when candle maker William Procter and soap maker James Gamble married the Norris sisters (Olivia and Elizabeth) and, at the behest of their mutual father-in-law, merged their separate fledgling businesses to create what many around the world now know as P&G.

If the the two entrepreneurs only could have imagined that one day their company, who began to see the fruits of its labor when the company secured a lucrative contract with the US military during the Civil War, would open centers all across the world. Including its newest one in Geneva.

They sure have come a long way...baby!
