Sanofi Trimming 160 Jobs At Former Chattem Facility In St. Elmo

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Sanofi, which earlier bought Chattem, is trimming 160 jobs in Chattanooga as part of a reorganization.

The former Chattem facility is in St. Elmo and was once known as the Chattanooga Medicine Company.

Sanofi officials said, "Sanofi is restructuring the U.S.

Consumer Healthcare commercial organization, which includes marketing, sales, R&D and some support functions. Given the ever-changing self-care market, this will allow us to more effectively serve the consumers who rely on our products. We will be rebuilding our Consumer Healthcare commercial operations with new positions based in Bridgewater, NJ.

"Impacted employees will be given the opportunity to apply for the new roles opening in Bridgewater.  For those impacted who do not obtain other roles at Sanofi or are not able to relocate, Sanofi will offer separation packages that include cash, continued health benefits, and career transition services.

"Sanofi will continue to maintain a significant presence in Tennessee with our Industrial Affairs organization, which will remain in Chattanooga."
