  Procter & Gamble will make laundry, hair care and body wash products at a plant it is building in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle.

The Cincinnati-based consumer goods company's new $500 million manufacturing hub near Martinsburg is being built to improve access to East Coast customers. P&G expects to employ 700 full-time workers there.

The company said in a news release Wednesday that some of the brands it will make at the Tabler Station facility include Bounce fabric enhancers, beginning production late next year; and Pantene, Head & Shoulders, Aussie, Herbal Essences and Vidal Sassoon shampoos and conditioners, and Olay and Old Spice body wash products, all beginning production in late 2018.

The company said 800 people have started the application and interview process to work at the plant. To apply, visit http://www.pgcareers.com .
