This move will centralize its current operations from two distribution facilities in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Mira Loma, California, to LPKC in Edgerton, Kansas.

"After completing our analysis, we determined that centralizing distribution operations in Edgerton will enable Spectrum Brands HHI to more efficiently serve our customers with lower inventory levels while establishing a platform for future growth.” said Sr. Vice President and General Manager of Hardware and Home Improvement Phil Szuba.

 “Its central location, access to a strong and available workforce with on-site recruitment and training assistance continues to illustrate why companies like Spectrum Brands HHI choose to locate in LPKC,” said City of Edgerton Mayor Roberts.
