7. The Proctor and Gamble Company

What is now a global corporation and one of the leading makers of household products, Proctor & Gamble started in 1837 when William Proctor, a soap maker and James Gamble, a candle maker became partners and started P&G.

The Proctor and Gamble world headquarters goes by many names like, “twin towers” and a few others that I will not mention. This postmodern building was completed in 1985 and has become a symbol of the Cincinnati skyline. P&G has centers and plants all over the country and the world, but aside from their corporate headquarters downtown, they have a plant located in St. Bernard called Ivorydale which is another excellent architectural piece and is worth taking a trip to.
