Pfizer plant in Michigan to cut 275

Pfizer is cutting 275 jobs at its biggest manufacturing plant in its latest restructuring move; the job eliminations in Kalamazoo, MI, will affect supervisory and support staff, and some operational staff such as project engineers. The layoffs are on top of the company's previously announced restructuring moves. "We operate in a highly competitive and constantly changing environment, and we have to adapt to that," A spokesman told the Kalamazoo Gazette.

The cuts will leave some 2,500 manufacturing workers at the Kalamazoo facility and 3,200 employees there altogether. The plant makes a variety of drugs, including the antibiotic Zyvox and the contraceptive injection Depo-Provera.
