Bayer Schering Pharma. Bayer Schering Pharma AG, formed from the Bayer Group's acquisition of Schering AG, is proceeding with an integration plan that will result in annual savings of EUR 700 million ($951 million) from 2009. Bayer announced in 2006 that the integration of the two companies will result in 6100 job cuts.

Schering-Plough. As part of a global manufacturing streamlining effort, Schering-Plough phased out and closed its pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Manati, Puerto Rico, at the end of 2006 and reduced the workforce in facilities in Las Piedras, Puerto Rico, and Kenilworth, New Jersey.
