Roche Shuts Down Operations

Company to continue site demolition in new year.

This week marked the end of an era as the Roche campus straddling Nutley and Clifton shut down local operations. 

The announcement that Roche Pharmaceuticals, the town's largest employer and tax revenue source, would leave Nutley Township at the end of 2013, caught town officials by surprise in June of 2012.

While in operation, Roche paid more than $9 million a year in property taxes to Nutley and received millions in tax abatements in the four years before they announced they would shut down operations.

The Clifton Journal reports that Roche has nearly completed demolition of one building and will be continuing breaking down the campus in 2014
