In 1963, P&G chose Belgium for its first Research & Development Center for Fabric and Home Care products, located on the old Expo ’58 site. The facility was called The European Technical Centre, later renamed the Brussels Innovation Centre.
Today P&G employs about 1,450 people in Belgium. At the Brussels Innovation Centre, there are more than 1,100 people, of which more than 600 are scientists and engineers. Our plant in Mechelen, has about 300 employees, who produce Automatic Dishwashing tablets.
