BB&T is planning to slash 89 jobs at the former Susquehanna Bancshares headquarters in Lititz, Lancaster County in Pennsylvania.

BB&T comprises about 500 former Susquehanna employees in Lititz, out of 900 in Lancaster County.

The employees became part of BB&T following its acquisition of Susquehanna for $2.5bn.

The job cuts represent nearly 18% of BB&T’s workforce in the borough and about 10% of its workforce in Lancaster County.

BB&T said that it intends to retain all of Susquehanna’s high-performing, direct client-facing associates and revenue producers.
