What is the modern history of Procter & Gamble?

Procter & Gamble’s roots go all the way back to 1837, when two men called William Procter and James Gamble started a soap and candle business in Cincinnati. P&G was listed in the 1890s, and in 1930 it established its first overseas subsidiary with the acquisition of Thomas Hedley & Co. Ltd in England. International expansion continued in the following decades, with operations spreading to both the Middle East and Far East, as well as to Latin America. In 1982, P&G began its over-the-counter health care business, and from 1989 the company expanded its beauty care and feminine care portfolio with several acquisitions. Then in 2005, P&G acquired the Gillette Company — the largest acquisition in P&G history.
