Drugmaker to shutter New York plant, lay off 56

Geritrex, a private-label drugmaker, will close its production plant in Town of Wallkill, N.Y., resulting in 56 layoffs, according to the Times Herald-Record.

The company told its employees it will begin the layoffs Aug. 18. The closure will occur later this summer.
