Abbott shutters Puerto Rico facility
Abbott closes down a Puerto Rico manufacturing facility, marking the 3rd reported workforce cuts in the last week alone.
Abbott is reportedly shutting down a Puerto Rico manufacturing plant, with an unspecified number of employees slated for termination.
The plant in question resides in a city called Barceloneta, and the facility houses pharmaceutical, diagnostics, biotechnology and vascular intervention development, according to Abbott's website. Local mayor Wanda Soler told reporters that the closing facility is the smallest of Abbott's offices in the town.
