Yesterday I spent the morning at Church & Dwight Co. in Vancouver, Washington, learning how Vitafusion and Walmart are committed to and partnering to invest in America. Vitafusion just opened up two new plants in Washington State, supplying more than 400 jobs in the Pacific Northwest. Church & Dwight Co., Inc. and Walmart proudly support and invest in local communities by continuing to support jobs that support U.S. manufacturing.
Thanks to Bloggin’ Mamas for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
Joined by employees, other local officials, community leaders and representatives from Walmart celebrated local manufacturing and the existing 400+ jobs at their two manufacturing facilities in the Vancouver, WA, area.
Deborah Herron, Director, Public Affairs, Walmart, Inc., commended Walmart’s 10-year commitment to buy an additional $250 billion in products supporting American jobs by 2023.
Rick Spann, Executive Vice President of Global Operations, Church & Dwight Co., spoke about how the Church & Dwight Co., Inc. Vancouver facility will produce over 1.6 billion gummies this year to be sold across the country. Additionally, to increase sustainability, all Church & Dwight U.S.-based operations aim to use 100% renewable electricity by end 2018.
Ridgefield Mayor Ron Onslow spoke about Vitafusion's local manufacturing facilities and the benefit to the region.
