Pfizer Inc.'s 20-person surveillance testing group in Groton, part of the company's Scientific Laboratory Services team that tests products manufactured by contractors, will be moving to Singapore sometime next year. Pfizer confirmed the planned move in an email, saying it was a cost-cutting measure. The company said three people in its surveillance testing group will be retained in Groton to oversee the program, and others may remain with Pfizer in other areas. Twenty-four people will be employed at the Singapore site, so the move is not part of a company downsizing, a spokesman said.
