Newell Rubbermaid Inc. is shifting the headquarters for its Rubbermaid Commercial Products group to Huntersville, N.C., to give its product development experts more opportunities and allow for more interaction between businesses.

The move from Winchester, Va., covers 65 jobs in marketing, research and development, design, finance and similar positions, but leaves intact more than 700 positions in Winchester for the warehouse operation there, said spokesman David Doolittle. Atlanta-based Newell Rubbermaid has made more than $60 million in improvements at Winchester in recent years, he said.

In Huntersville, the commercial products employees will share a campus with Newell Rubbermaid's tools group. The combination will allow them to compare ideas across multiple units while also giving product development more opportunities to work in other units at the company, Doolittle said.

“These professional-facing businesses [in Huntersville] have some of the highest growth potential of the company, and a strengthened Huntersville hub will help us accelerate growth while increasing personal development opportunities for our employees,” the company noted in a written statement.
