Colgate-Palmolive Co. to Close Dallas Toothbrush Plant and Laying Off 95 Employees; to Shift Production to Colgate Facility in Morristown, Tennessee

Colgate-Palmolive Co. plans to permanently close its Dallas imprinted toothbrush manufacturing plant, laying off 95 employees. Operations will cease on June 30, 2014 at Colgate Oral Pharmaceuticals and the company expects the facility at 14335 Gillis Road to fully close by Dec. 31, 2015. Fourteen employees were notified of their looming termination in letters hand-delivered April 8, 2014. More layoffs are expected beginning in the third quarter of 2015 as manufacturing shifts to Tennessee, and Colgate-Palmolive will file new documents with the Texas Workforce Commission as those position elimination dates get closer. Production will shift to a Colgate facility in Morristown, Tenn. This change is part of the company's four-year Global Growth and Efficiency Program.
