Published: Dec 06, 2011
C.R. Bard plans to cut 50 more local jobs in 2012.The announcement was made Friday to employees, but the company also said it could retain Queensbury workers by bringing new products to the site. The global medical company announced last winter 200 positions would be shifted from the Queensbury plant to other areas. Less than half of that number was immediately impacted at that time, C.R. Bard Vice President and Treasurer Scott Lowry said Friday. "We're obviously committed to the area, and we're looking for other opportunities to move products in," Lowry said. "We don't view this as anything major or something as a signal in any way."
