Pfizer has decided to cut 50 positions from its Brandon plant as the company’ restructuring plan takes effect in 2012 and 2013.
The decision does not impact the rancher network, which helps supply the plant, however the decision was made after an operational review looked for "efficiencies and cost reductions" in an effort to use "resources and technology more effectively."
The company states the Brandon plant will be more competitive as a result of the restructuring plan.
The Brandon plant currently has 130 employees, and will gradually drop to 80 by the end of 2013 as a result of this decision.
More details will be available in tomorrow’s Brandon Sun.
