Place of Origin

Maker Procter & Gamble

Maker Details William Procter, a candlemaker, and James Gamble, a soapmaker, emigrated from England and Ireland respectively. They settled in Cincinnati initially and met when they married sisters, Olivia and Elizabeth Norris. Alexander Norris, their father-in-law, called a meeting in which he persuaded his new sons-in-law to become business partners. On October 31, 1837, as a result of the suggestion, Procter & Gamble was created. In 1858-1859, sales reached $1 million. The company produces prodcuts such as Ivory soap, Pampers diapers, Crest toothpaste, and Tide laundry detergent.
