Pfizer is restructuring its activities worldwide. One of the victims is the branch in Havant, near Portsmouth. The packaging and dispatching site will be closed by 2020.
Pfizer will be transferring activities to Puurs, a site estimated to be better suited to cope with future growth. The Belgian branch already employs 1,950 people. The number of new jobs triggered by the decision, has not been released, but is said to be "substantial". At present, there are already some 100 vacancies.
