Energizer distribution site to close in Illinois, 125 jobs lost

Energizer Holdings is closing a battery distribution site in northwestern Illinois, U.S., laying off 125 employees, Associated Press reported.

Layoffs will begin in May at the Rayovac packaging and distribution center in Dixon, according to a notice filed with the state. The center has been open since 2003 and ships about 11 million cases of batteries each year.

In 2018, Spectrum Brands Holdings made a deal to sell its batteries and appliance division to Energizer, SaukValley.com reported.
