Mylan Announces Job Cuts at Site in West VirginiaBy
Mylan has announced layoffs affecting about 15% of its workforce at its site in Morgantown, West, Virginia, primarily in operations. Following the layoffs, Mylan said it will remain one of the largest employers in West Virginia with approximately 3,000 employees.
“We believe our plant in Morgantown is one of the largest pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities in the world,” Mylan said in a statement. “As the industry has changed and regulatory expectations have continued to evolve, we’ve realized that our Morgantown plant needed to be right-sized to be less complex. The right-sizing is consistent with discussions we are having with the US Food and Drug Administration and is necessary in order to position the site as best we can for continued operations.”
Mylan says it remains committed to a US manufacturing base and plans to continue making the majority of the medicines it supplies to the US in the US.
