Energizer Holdings, Inc. announced that it will close its feminine care facility in Montreal, Quebec by early 2017.  This is a part of Energizer's previously announced restructuring program, and 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.
 
"This was a difficult but necessary decision to maintain the company's position in this highly competitive business," said David Hatfield, President and Chief Operating Officer, Energizer Personal Care.  "This decision is being announced now to maximize planning and transition time for all colleagues and the community.  We will support our colleagues through this transition, and will work with local officials to ensure that support and resources to help colleagues re-enter the labor market are made available."
 
Feminine Care production at the Montreal facility will be consolidated into the company's Delaware facility; thereby maximizing cost and efficiencies.  Consolidation will happen in phases from the summer of 2015 through early 2017.  The Montreal facility currently employs 430 colleagues (workers).
