Heavy Layoffs in Bensalem Affect the Holiday Spirit

December 2, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Many residents of Bucks County will not be feeling the holiday cheer this year. Nearly 1,000 layoffs are expected at Express Scripts, a mail order prescription firm based in St. Louis. The company has decided to shut the doors of its dispensing plant on Marshall Lane and the prescription processing plant located on Street Road.

The company estimates that both facilities will be gone and the workers will be terminated by February 1st.

Bensalem Mayor Joe DiGirolamo called the loss of jobs a huge blow to the community and that the township will try to find another company to help compensate for the job losses.
