MSD to close Rathdrum plant in 2015
7 March 2013
Pharmaceutical company MSD is to close its manufacturing plant at Rathdrum in Co Wicklow, Ireland by the end of 2015, resulting in the loss of 280 jobs.
The company told workers of its plan to cease operations at the location in two years' time.
In a statement, it said that activities will begin in 2014, but no staff cuts are expected until the end of next year.
The company makes ingredients for respiratory care, infectious disease and cardiovascular medicines.
As a result of the proposed closure, the company said it plans to relocate products to MSD sites in Ballydine in Co Tipperary and Singapore.
Borer's FUSION Time Recording System
With a high number of employees on payroll, using Borer's FUSION Time Recording System will help reduce management involvement and the administrative effort required to manage a time management scheme.
It is labour demanding to manage and maintain a centrally administered or paper based flexitime system. Invariably, queries arise in relation to flexi balances and the process can become a very complicated one, particularly for the HR department.
Implementing an automated time and attendance system makes things very easy for both employees and their managers alike.
