C.R. Bard shifts jobs to upstate N.Y.
Acquisitions prompt C.R. Bard to add jobs at its Queensbury, N.Y., plant after 2 rounds of layoffs last year.
The Murray Hill, N.J.-based firm shifted product lines it acquired to the upstate New York plant, vice president & treasurer Scott Lowry told the Post Star. Bard laid off 55 workers in July 2012 and another 54 last November, according to the newspaper.
Lowry said the acquisitions of Lutonix, Loma Vista Medical and FlowCardia prompted it to move production of those products to Queensbury, according to the paper.
