Novartis cuts 275 jobs at Illinois site to consolidate Zolgensma manufacturing in North Carolina
As Novartis continues to reshape itself, the company is shutting the doors to one of its gene therapy manufacturing sites in the US.
The closure of a site in Libertyville, IL, a city to the northeast of Chicago, follows a “comprehensive manufacturing site network evaluation,” the company said in a statement to Endpoints News.
The decision will cause 275 jobs to be axed, but the site is expected to remain operational through the end of next year, with some activities stopping earlier as others will take time to complete. The company will offer 90-day notifications to workers along with severance packages, outplacement support and other benefits.
