Vestas is shuttering its research and development (R&D) facilities in Houston; Louisville, Colo.; and Marlborough, Mass., and transferring those locations' employees to its Brighton, Colo., office, Vestas spokesperson Andrew Longeteig has confirmed to NAW.

The Brighton facility will serve as an R&D hub and will allow the company to be closer to its manufacturing operations in Colorado. The Louisville and Houston locations will close by the end of this year, and the Massachusetts location will close by the end of next June, Longeteig says.

The announcement comes less than two months after the latest round of layoffs at the company's Pueblo, Colo., manufacturing facility. In January, Vestas said a major restructuring effort was under way as part of a plan to regain financial strength.
