East-end Johnson and Johnson plant to close; 430 jobs lost

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.

    Another big company closing its doors on its Quebec operations. No surprise here since it would be cheaper and less complicated to do business in the US without all the high taxes and language laws. Just another blow to the economy of Quebec but not really any surprise here.
