Energizer Holdings to shutter Montreal fem care facility

July 10, 2014

Production will be consolidated into the company's Delaware facility.

Energizer Holdings Inc. is closing its feminine care facility in Montreal, Quebec by early 2017, affecting 430 workers.

"This was a difficult but necessary decision to maintain the company's position in this highly competitive business," says David Hatfield, president and COO of Energizer Personal Care.

The closure is a part of the consumer goods maker's previously announced restructuring program. Costs and savings from the closure are included in the estimated $350 million in total restructuring costs and $300 million in total gross restructuring savings.

Feminine care production at the Montreal facility will be consolidated into the company's Delaware facility and will happen in phases from the summer of 2015 through early 2017.
