P&G To Close Clairol Hair Care Product Plant in Connecticut

July 12, 2007

Procter & Gamble Co. said it would close its hair care product plant with 615 employees in Stamford, Conn., by early 2010.

Some 200 employees at the Clairol plant will be offered transfers to other P&G locations, including 150 to the Cincinnati area where P&G is based. P&G said 415 jobs would be eliminated, with 180 of those employees qualifying for retirement.

P&G has been cutting production and jobs at the plant since buying Clairol in 2001 from Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. The plant makes color and styling products.

P&G said it will provide workers with assistance including pay and benefits for up to a year, outplacement help and a retraining allowance as jobs are eliminated leading up to the closure. The plant’s work will move to P&G facilities in Mariscala, Mexico; Andover, MA; Woodland Hills, CA and Cincinnati, OH. More info: www.pg.com.
