Gillette dropping $200 Million on Boston Razor Plant

While they are still talking over the takeover by Procter & Gamble, Gillette has promised $200 million for capital improvements to the flagship Boston razor plant over the next three years. Good news for Southie. I’m not sure how many layoffs are predicted, but this is certainly good news in a town where ‘blue collar’ and manufacturing work is getting increasingly hard to find. The general trend in the US to become a ‘services’ or technology oriented economy is a little scary at times. Where’s the pride in Made in the USA? Let alone Made in Massachusetts?
