A New Jersey company will
move a major laundry-detergent factory to York County,
potentially creating hundreds of new jobs.

Princeton-based Church & Dwight Co. Inc. today announced
it would open the new detergent factory and distribution center on a 232-acre
site in Jackson Township.

Church & Dwight sells Arm & Hammer baking soda and
laundry detergent, Trojan condoms, and other personal-care and household
products.

Church & Dwight did not announce in a news release how
many people would be hired in York County, but the new plant is replacing a New Jersey facility that
employs at least 300 people.

The old factory, in North
Brunswick, N.J., was
inefficient and unable to handle anticipated future growth, according to the
company.

“The new site is designed to significantly reduce production
and distribution center costs,” Church & Dwight Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer James R. Craigie said in the news release.

Church & Dwight plans to begin construction of the new
facility in September 2008 and have it operational by the end of 2009. The
company said it expects to spend
$170 million on capital expenditures and transition costs for the project. A
company representative could not immediately be reached.

Church & Dwight shares are traded on the New York Stock
Exchange
under the ticker symbol CHD.
