Merck & Co., Inc. Consolidates Animal Health Offices; Axes 65 Jobs
Published: Feb 01, 2012
Merck said today it plans to centralize its animal health business by moving dozens of functions to Summit from operations in the Netherlands. The plan, which must still be reviewed by the Dutch government’s Work Council, will involve relocating most of the animal health unit’s commercial, marketing and corporate headquarters operations to the Summit campus. The proposed consolidation follows the company’s nearly year-old announcement that it would carry out an extensive evaluation of the animal health business, including its geographical footprint.
