Sligo company to shed 100 jobs
The North West and Sligo was hit with a job loss announcement on Wednesday with news that Elanco Animal Health is to close its Finisklin manufacturing site with the loss of 100 jobs.
The company had made 54 people redundant at their facility in June 2015 but according to the company the restructuring had not been sufficient in establishing a competitive business model for the facility.
In a statement issued by the company it said: “We informed our workforce in Sligo, that we have made the decision to close our Sligo manufacturing facility. The difficult decision was reached as part of an in-depth evaluation of our global manufacturing operations. The global evaluation has also resulted in the decision to exit ownership of our manufacturing operations in Dundee, Scotland.”
