Some adjustments to the Medartis U.S. manufacturing workforce recently were made, according to a spokesperson for the company.
In a statement provided Monday, the spokesperson said, “In reflection of market needs and in order to improve efficiency, we have taken measures to rightsize the organization, resulting in a slight adjustment of the Medartis U.S. manufacturing workforce. This led to a few redundancies, which were handled as smoothly as possible, and in a manner offering support to the individuals and their families. Medartis remains committed to its location in Warsaw, in which the company has significantly invested since the acquisition of NSI.”
The statement comes after the Times-Union requested a comment from the company after receiving an email Friday that stated Medartis Inc., Warsaw, had held its second mass firing event on Wednesday, June 19. The email also said the employees had no warning, and their insurance benefits were cut that night at midnight. “Again, this is the second time they have held such an event. The last one was a few months back,” the email stated.
On June 11, Medartis announced that its CEO, Christoph Brönnimann, has decided to resign from his position and leave the company to pursue other opportunities.
In May 2022, Medartis Holding AG announced it completed the acquisition of Nextremity Solutions Inc., a strategic commercialization organization in Warsaw.
