NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Pfizer Global Supply (PGS) announced today the results of its Logistics and Plant Network Strategy studies for the manufacturing sites and distribution centers that joined the company with the acquisition of King Pharmaceuticals.

The purpose of these two studies was to integrate King’s manufacturing and supply capabilities within the broader PGS network, and to identify opportunities to improve the network’s overall competitiveness.

Pfizer will retain all eight plants and all 12 distribution centers that presently comprise legacy Alpharma Animal Health; exit the legacy King pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Bristol, Tenn.; complete the exit of a manufacturing site in St. Petersburg, Fla. that was announced in 2007; and consolidate the Bristol logistics center into Pfizer’s existing Memphis distribution facility.
