"My Grow Wisconsin plan included significant investments to upgrade and expand our traditional industries," Governor Doyle said.  "Wisconsin has been the number-one paper producer in the country for 50 years. To maintain that leadership, I am pleased that we could help Procter & Gamble install a new paper machine in Wisconsin for the first time in 35 years."

"We are pleased to make this investment in growing our Charmin and Bounty capacity at our Green Bay site," said David Taylor,  President of P&G's Global Family Care business.

P&G is expected to invest more than $200 million to complete this project, which will result in the retention of 900 employees. A state incentive package totaling $3.4 million will assist with employee training, equipment acquisition, and infrastructure  improvements.
