Church & Dwight Co., Inc. Celebrates Over 400 Local Manufacturing Jobs

VANCOUVER, Wash., Dec. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Church & Dwight Co., Inc., the maker of the #1 adult gummy vitamin brand vitafusiontm, joined employees, local officials, community leaders and representatives from Walmart to celebrate local manufacturing and the existing 400+ jobs at their two manufacturing facilities in the Vancouver, WA area. The company also commended Walmart's 10-year commitment to buy an additional $250 billion in products supporting American jobs by 2023.

"Walmart has been great for our business and their purchasing has allowed us to make a strong impact on our communities by creating jobs at local factories," said Laurie Kirschner, Director of Marketing for Vitamins & Supplements at Church & Dwight. "Our Vancouver area facilities employ over 400 people, and it is only the beginning! Working to help build and grow our communities through our workforce is essential to the work that we do. We truly believe in the power of American manufacturing."

Based on data from Boston Consulting Group, it's estimated that 1 million new U.S. jobs will be created through Walmart's initiative, including direct manufacturing job growth of approximately 250,000, and indirect job growth of approximately 750,000 in the support and service sectors.

The Church & Dwight Co., Inc. Vancouver facility will produce over 1.6 billion gummies this year to be sold across the country. Additionally, in efforts to become more sustainable, all their US-based operations will have the goal to use 100% renewable electricity, including the corporate offices and plants by the end of 2018.

"Our customers have told us that second to price, where products are made influences their purchase decisions," said Cindi Marsiglio, vice president, U.S. manufacturing, Walmart. "We are focused on buying great quality products that create jobs in communities across the U.S. It makes sense for our customers, our communities and our company."

Church & Dwight Co., Inc. and Walmart proudly support and invest in local communities by continuing to create jobs that support U.S. manufacturing.
