employees elsewhere in Connecticut.

The change in plans is part of a wider move to consolidate operations in Hopewell, New Jersey and Seattle, Washington.

BMS will distribute those jobs across other facilities and is adding to its Lawrenceville, New Jersey campus and expand its Devens, Massachusetts facility. None of the jobs will remain in Connecticut.
