Take­da trims op­er­a­tions at Aus­tri­an site, lays off 190 staffers

With no buy­er yet for Take­da’s man­u­fac­tur­ing site in Aus­tria, the com­pa­ny is wind­ing down op­er­a­tions at the lo­ca­tion and is lay­ing off 190 work­ers, a spokesper­son told End­points News.

The Japan­ese com­pa­ny in­formed em­ploy­ees a year ago that it planned to di­vest its fa­cil­i­ty in Or­th an der Donau, which is al­most an hour away from Vi­en­na, the spokesper­son said.
