Another plant closure, and more job losses coming to Montreal.
Energizer, the battery company, has announced plans to close the Johnson and Johnson plant in the city's east-end by 2017. 430 jobs will be lost.
Energizer purchased the Stayfree, Carefree and O.B. feminine hygiene product brands from Johnson and Johnson nine months ago.
Today it announced plans to gradually phase out those brands between next summer and early 2017, and consolidate the Montreal production facility into the company's plant in Delaware.
