In an effort to streamline operations and bring more of its brands together, Newell Rubbermaid has decided to move the headquarters of its Rubbermaid Commercial Products division from Winchester to Huntersville, N.C.

Company spokesman David Doolittle said the move will relocate 65 jobs in marketing, finance, planning and research and development, but will not affect the 750 employees involved in the factory, warehousing operations and distribution center. He said the move also won't change the type of products manufactured at the Winchester factory.

He said Huntersville, located about 15 miles north of Charlotte, N.C., already has a significant presence in the company's tools division.

"By moving Rubbermaid Products, we will be able to drive better collaborating, innovation and career paths," he said.

Doolittle said the 65 employees affected have been offered relocation packages and have until mid-2014 to move.

Asked whether more employees will be relocated in the future, he said the company has no intention of moving its warehousing jobs.

"We remain committed to Winchester," he said. "It's a very important facility to us."
