I am interested in knowing if the decision to close the Findlay facility was because of favorable tax incentives in the other states. Anyone out there know?

Yeah. I'm sure that's what all of them told their families and spouses last night. Gee, I'm surprised they didn't make you CEO.

Where did you get that information??? The government had nothing to do with the inventory control model that Cardinal Health selected. Their is a lot # and expiration date on all health care supplies. Most companies want at least a year left on the exporation date before they sell supplies. Airhead, no one wants to purchase supplies with a short expiration date and have to return the supplies at a later date. The just in time method that they selected reduces the cost of their inventory and helps their bottom line.

I am employee at Cardinal Health which experienced the recent "lay off". This came as a huge shock to all of us, within the last year, the company has been telling us sales are up, and we ranked highest in the NATION in regards to our audit, we received a "gold star". Our on-time deliveries percentages were the highest in the nation as well! So this is extremely shocking to all of us! Would have appreciated a bit more "heads up" about the news, but in the end, we realize how "small" our input must be. Thanks Cardinal Health for all the wonderful years (?) IDK... Dan

The head of inventory did a presentation on the process and business model at the NLC about a year ago. He talked about the old model and why they changed it so that is where I got my information. Most of the expiration dates are at lest a year and a half away. Never meant inventory would stay for long enough for them to expire. Would not just pull that stuff out of the air and make a comment if you are somebody who knows more then a head of inventory at the NLC then I will stand corrected, can only go on the information presented to me. No, need for the insult "airhead" comment, donít see how my comment could of offended you so much and if your one who is losing your job then I have nothing buy sympathy for you.

You're right, accept my apology. I just go off when people blame the government for all of their problems. As an example, Hugo Boss the suit maker announced it was closing a plant in Ohio and shipping the jobs overseas to China or India. For the life of me I cannot figure how Hugo Boss expect unemployed Americans to buy their clothes if they are unemployed. Now Governor Strickland will be blamed for losing jobs for Ohioans

In Hugo Boss's case this is just plain greed. They know the fix the American economy is in and they send our jobs overseas so that they can increase their profit margins.

Another friend of mine worked in IT at Chase bank, his job was shipped to India. He had to train the Indian. Chase paid for the Indian to come to America, his room and board while he was here and his return flight to India. What did the American get a bull severance package and the promise of a good reference.

Who are you going to blame??? The government??? I think not. The blame should go to the greedy bastards at chase bank.

I donít think anybody can blame one person or group for everything. I donít know about boss or chase but I know a lil about Cardinal and honestly I do fear what the future holds because of Government as well as corporate greed. I just pray that people look above to God for direction, call things what they are and push themselves to achieve better things.

The inventory control that Cardinal Health selected has a great deal to do with the government: it's called Sarbox-Oxley. Basically, this law said that any pharmaceutical business can no longer buy in bulk and hold on to the inventory until a better price pops up. Granted, we all want good dating on a medical supplies; but the government did get its hands into the business and changed how many do business. As a soon to be former Cardinal Health personnel, feel betrayed by the suits sitting in their Dublin based offices, knowing that those who I have worked, sweated, and bled with over the past five and a half years will be jobless. During the announcement of the forcoming closure, the senior VP stated that though he was losing this DC, he still had seven others to look after and that he was keeping his job. If it were up to us at Findlay, this VP would have been gone long before he made the announcement!
