Mylan announced that they will be laying off more than 400 people, which will be about 15 percent of their workforce in Morgantown.

They said these layoffs will primarily be in operations.

Mylan said that after the layoff, they will still be one of the largest employers in West Virginia with around 3,000 employees.

Mylan released the following statement:

We believe our plant in Morgantown is one of the largest pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities in the world. As the industry has changed and regulatory expectations have continued to evolve, we’ve realized that our Morgantown plant needed to be rightsized to be less complex. The right-sizing is consistent with discussions we are having with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is necessary in order to position the site as best we can for continued operations. 

We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
