NEW YORK — Unilever is looking to close the Alberto-Culver plant outside of Chicago in Melrose Park in 2013, and, in a few months, will begin laying off at least 600 employees, according to a Chicago Sun-Times report.
Unilever spokeswoman Anita Larsen told the Chicago Sun-Times, “This decision was taken as a result of a review of the company’s manufacturing network in order to achieve cost efficiencies.”
Unilever acquired Alberto-Culver last year for $3.7 billion. The plant makes TRESemme and Alberto V05 shampoos. It also turns out Nexxus shampoos and conditioners and St. Ives lotions and body wash, the article stated.
