is planning to shut down its Franklin, Massachusetts facility before the year is over, company spokesman Jon Goldstein confirmed to The MFWire

The move stems from a desire for optimization of space and does not reflect any plans for upcoming workforce reductions, Goldstein told The MFWire
A small portion of the Franklin staff may be directed into Putnam's "work at home" program, which has been a part of Putnamís workforce organization for several years.
