Bayer is closing its customer logistics center in Mishawaka, Indiana, as part of a larger restructuring plan announced last year designed to cut costs and streamline operations.
The customer logistics service center is responsible for the end-to-end customer experience for Bayer's Consumer Health and Pharmaceuticals businesses.
The decision will result in 194 layoffs and will be slowly implemented over an 18-month period.
“Bayer has made the decision to move away from operating a local service center and transition toward an integrated global organization. This will help the company reduce complexity, improve efficiency and enhance customer service. This will also position Bayer to remain competitive in our industry over the long term and ensure that we appropriately meet current and future needs of our customers and businesses for years to come," said a Bayer spokesperson.
