New York (AP) -- Avon Products says by 2013 it will eliminate about 1,200 positions -- including about 600 in ohio -- as part of its restructuring efforts.

The cosmetics company says the cutbacks will include the closing of a plant and a product-returns facility in the Cincinnati suburb of Springdale by mid-2012.

Avon spokeswoman Jennifer Vargas says 590 workers will be affected.

Vargas says Avon will continue to employ around 350 people at a call center in the Cincinnati area.

The New York-based company says the restructuring program, which was announced in February, will help trim costs and improve efficiency.

Avon expects to be saving $200 million a year by 2012.
