NEW JERSEY (WKZO) -- Its not likely to impact Kalamazoo’s workforce, but its being widely reported that drug maker Pfizer is about to start another round of layoffs targeting its sales force this time.
Reports are the layoffs will target the salesmen who promote drugs like Lipitor that have gone generic and are no longer being promoted. Pfizer will only say changes are coming but say that details about the sales force are proprietary.
The company took an 18% cut in their revenue in the third quarter because of the loss of patent protection for Lipitor and other drugs.
Pfizer only has manufacturing facilities and its former animal health division in Kalamazoo County these days.
