One of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies is to close one of its plants in Australia and move production to Croatia.

American pharmaceutical company Pfizer have decided to shut down its plant in the city of Adelaide and move production to the Croatian capital Zagreb.

“Adelaide produces filgrastim intermediate and ships this to Zagreb for pegylation and filling into pre-filled syringes. The manufacturing of filgrastim intermediate will be transferred to Croatia,” Pfizer spokeswoman Ziva Janez Visnar told Hina.

Pfizer, which currently has over 80,000 employees around the world, will close its Adelaide facility within the next four years.
