EWING TOWNSHIP, N.J. (Business Wire) -- Church & Dwight Co, Inc. (NYSE: CHD) dedicated its new worldwide headquarters building here today with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by New Jersey Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno, Church & Dwight's Chairman and CEO James R. Craigie, as well as Ewing Township Mayor Bert Steinmann. The facility has capacity for more than 550 employees.
“Church & Dwight belongs in New Jersey,” said Mr. Craigie. “We've been here for more than 25 years, and this new headquarters facility enables us to consolidate our growing operations in the state. Governor Christie and Lieutenant Governor Guadagno were personally committed to this project and we applaud all their efforts to keep business in this great state.”
"Keeping Church & Dwight in New Jersey was critically important not only to the economy of Mercer County, but also to the economy of our entire state," said Lt. Governor Guadagno. "Governor Christie's leadership and pro-growth policies have made it possible to attract and retain companies of all sizes, generating opportunities for job creation, economic growth and business investment. We're proud Church & Dwight will continue to call the Garden State home.”
New Jersey's Business Action Center, led by Lt. Governor Guadagno, was an important resource throughout the site's selection process, construction, and relocation. In addition, the state's Economic Development Agency approved potential financial incentives to help Church & Dwight retain or create specific job openings at the new headquarters site.
The facility is located at 500 Charles Ewing Boulevard in Mercer County, part of the Princeton South Corporate Park near the intersection of U.S. Highway 95 and N.J. Route 31. It occupies 250,000-square-feet and features two connecting 125,000-square-foot, energy-efficient office buildings separated by an atrium. The new headquarters centralizes employees previously housed in four separate buildings.
All corporate departments of Church & Dwight are based at the new facility, including the Executive Offices, Sales, Marketing, Operations, Finance, Accounting, IT, Law and HR divisions. The R&D team and our Specialty Products Division remains in the former headquarters building in Princeton.
