Procter & Gamble has been based in West Thurrock since 1937.
Production at our factory began in September 1940 and the site has grown significantly over the years. Today, we manufacture Fabric & Home Care products such as Fairy washing-up liquid and Ariel, Bold, Fairy and Daz laundry detergent powders. P&G also has a Distribution Centre on site which manages across P&G’s total portfolio of products. We have 350 employees on site as well as hosting up to 800 contractors and third-party employees.
Since the company’s arrival in West Thurrock, P&G has been closely connected to the local community. P&G run an established Employee Charity Fund which has contributed over £65,000 to charitable causes over the last 5 years, funded by P&G as well as employee contributions.
In 1991, P&G adopted St Clement’s Church and has been its proud custodians since that day, welcoming visitors, hosting special Christmas services – and even appearing in the hit film ‘4 Weddings and a Funeral’ in 1994! A team of past and present employees host Open Days on the first weekend of every month for the community to enjoy and learn about the rich history of the church.
