Procter Gamble Co was founded in the year 1837. The company has been operational for almost 181 years now. The founders of the company were James Gamble and William Procter. Both of the co-founders of the company immigrants and tradespeople, when they married sisters of the same family in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. The co-founders' father-in-law, known as Alexander Norris, convinced the two in order to become business partners. And thus Procter & Gamble or P&G was established in the year 1837. During the American Civil War, the company co-founders had contracts in order to supply the Union army with soap and candles.
During the 1880s, the company began to market a new product - which was a soap that floated in the water, known as Ivory. During that time, the company had started to build factories and facilities all over the USA as the demand had outgrown the capacity of the original Cincinnati facilities as well. Then in the year 1911, the company had introduced Crisco- which was a shortening made from vegetable oils and were very much an alternative to lard.

As of the year 2005, the company had announced its acquisition of Gillette. This had formed the largest consumer goods company in the world, thereby placing Unilever in second place.
