Procter & Gamble’s newly updated Mason Business Center is a vital piece of its local Ohio community, leading the way in research and development and employing 2,800 employees under one, 2-million-square-foot roof. The company spent $400 million on the new facility, designed to integrate P&G’s beauty innovation team in one location.
The modernized center is now a third larger, making it the biggest P&G research facility in the world, surpassing the Singapore center. In Mason, employees can observe consumer behavior, run focus groups and test products in real-time, paving the way for new ideas and innovations.
“An innovative team is one that tries different things, they try on ideas. They listen, they’re open to learn,” said P&G CEO David Taylor. “To me, what we’ve created is this space to allow and foster that kind of innovation and interaction.”
