May 19, 2015- Albany, GA- Werhner Washington, Plant Manager at the Albany Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) and Albany Technical College Board Member, was featured as the May "Faces of Manufacturing in Georgia," a segment produced by the Georgia Manufacturing Extension Partnership (GaMEP), a part of the Georgia Tech Enterprise Innovation Institute.

Faces of Manufacturing was developed by the Georgia Manufacturing Extension Partnership (GaMEP) at Georgia Tech and is supported by Georgia Tech, organizations and companies across Georgia, their partners, and a national sponsor, NIST MEP.

In the feature, Washington cited Albany as the place where he received his first job and how he has now returned to Southwest Georgia where he started his family and launched his career. Eleven years after getting his start in Albany, Washington worked in another P&G plant in Pennsylvania and later, at P&G's corporate headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Washington began service on the Albany Technical College Board of Directors in September of 2014. In his recently appointed role as Plant Manager for P&G Albany's Global Family Care Business Unit/Product Supply, he leads a manufacturing plant with 1200-plus employees and contractors who produce over $40MM cases annually of Bounty Kitchen Towels and Charmin Bathroom Tissue.
