Sandoz layoffs continue as Broomfield plant closes

BROOMFIELD — Sandoz Inc. announced this week that 37 more employees will be laid off as Novartis-affiliated pharmaceutical company winds down operations at its Broomfield manufacturing plant. 

The latest employee separations — part of a rolling series of layoffs in advance of the facility closure that will result in the loss of about 450 jobs — are expected to occur between October and December, according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act notice submitted to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment.

These upcoming layoffs will affect employees in a variety of job types, including analysts, associate directors, chemists, production managers and scientists.
