Sun Pharma to cut 96 jobs in New Jersey

Sun Pharma plans to combine its two manufacturing plants in New Jersey, placing 96 jobs at risk, according to ROI-NJ.

The affected jobs will include packaging operators, chemists and mechanics at its Cranbury (N.J.) facility. The layoffs are slated to occur throughout 2019.

"Sun Pharma is consolidating its manufacturing operations at New Brunswick and Cranbury into one location, New Brunswick,” a company spokesperson told ROI-NJ. "The restructuring is aimed at optimizing our manufacturing operations and improving cost efficiencies in the increasingly competitive U.S. market."

The laid off workers will receive a severance package and may be able to relocate.
