    With all the layoffs the question many have had is how much did Scott pay for those modern offices in New haven when the economy was in a downturn?

    Considering that we still pay the lease on Norwalk until 2020 it really made no sense. Millions were spent on all this moving.

    Why would Rich Allow Scotty to invest in a building move when the market was suffering?

    not sure of the cost, but remember it was less than 20 months ago when the company was growing and business was so great they had to move from Norwalk to New Haven, this was from the Norwalk Hour Newspaper. I laughed my ass off reading this, how could a Company go from growing and needing more space when we were allready in a recession downturn to where Surgical is today.

    Covidien pulling plug on Norwalk facility

    Business at Covidien is great, and that's bad news for Norwalk.

    Covidien, formerly U.S. Surgical, announced to its employees on Wednesday that it will close the Norwalk facility at 150 Glover Ave. within two years as it seeks a larger space in New Haven County. Covidien, a maker of health care products, employs about 300 people in Norwalk, mostly in sales and marketing.

    Those employees will not lose their jobs, but will need to relocate to the other facility when it opens. Covidien already has a facility in North Haven that employs more than 2,000 people. According to company officials, Covidien is seeking to relocate its Norwalk facility closer to its employee base.

    The Connecticut locations are the Surgical Devices Global Business unit of Covidien.

    XXXXXXXX, vice president of communications at Covidien, said the employees in Norwalk were notified via a town hall-style meeting on Wednesday.

    "First we announced we are having a very successful first quarter, and we are very proud of that success and of our employees," XXXXX said. "Also, because of this growth and need for space, we are looking at different options to grow our space. We are in the beginning phases of that, but the Norwalk building will be closed in the next one or two years.

    "There will be no layoffs," she added. "In fact, we have dozens of jobs open
    in engineering and other fields."

    XXXX said Covidien will look to lease and retrofit an existing office space rather than construct a new building . . .
