The investment, which will support product enhancements and new cell manufacturing and packaging lines, ensures that Rayovac’s two hearing aid battery facilities in the United States and the United Kingdom have the capacity to meet the increasing needs of hearing professionals and consumers worldwide.

Rayovac’s plants already are some of the most productive battery factories in the world, manufacturing hundreds of millions of battery cells each year which are exported to more than 100 countries. Emerging markets such as Latin America, China, India and Russia have powered demand for Rayovac’s hearing aid batteries, and technological innovations and expanded distribution have boosted sales in core markets.

“This investment will underpin the future success of Rayovac® in the global market, ensuring we expand our position as the leader and innovator in this growing battery category,” said Randy Raymond, Vice President of Rayovac®. “The new technologies our team is developing will help us to meet our commitment to hearing aid users and the global hearing healthcare industry to provide the longest-lasting, most reliable hearing aid batteries available. And, of course, it is a given that this effort is directed behind batteries that contain no added mercury.”
