TORONTO - Novartis AG is shutting down its Ciba Vision plant in Mississauga, Ont., in the new year, resulting in the loss of 300 jobs.
The Swiss-based drug company says the closure will be done in phases and be completed by the end of 2014.
The plant, which manufactures contact lens solution, has been in the suburb west of Toronto since the early 1980s. Once it's closed, production will be transferred to a plant in Fort Worth, Texas.
