Cardinal Health to move 'partial production' out of Norfolk plant
NORFOLK, Neb. – Changes are coming to a northeast Nebraska employer, though specific details remain unclear.
Several employees at Cardinal Health’s Norfolk location, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that they were informed Wednesday morning that the company would be moving some of its production to other locations outside of the Norfolk facility.
In an email to NCN on Wednesday, Cardinal Health confirmed that operational changes are expected by April of 2023, while also stating there are no immediate affects to staff members' employment status.
“We continually adapt our business to meet the changing needs of our industry and have made the difficult decision to move partial production out of this plant to other suppliers over the course of the coming year,” the company statement read. “Any potential employee impacts will be assessed and communicated with transparency. There are no immediate employee impacts.”
In March of 2021, Cardinal announced that it had signed an agreement to sell part of its business to Hellman & Friedman for approximately $1 billion. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of Cardinal Health's fiscal year 2022.
Cardinal Health has been in business for 50 years and has operation in more than 40 countries. It employs approximately 48,000 employees globally.
