United Drug to Shut Down Pharma Packaging Co., 160 to Lose Jobs


6/26/2013 8:09:13 AM

Hey, other Co's in the U.S. are hiring! (Isn’t it tempting?)

More than 160 people will lose their jobs under plans to close a pharmaceutical packaging company in Swindon. TD Packaging, in Stephenson Road, Groundwell Industrial Estate, has proved unprofitable for multinational parent company United Drug, and the decision to close the factory was taken in early May with costs to upgrade the facility deemed too high. The 45-day consultation period for staff affected by the plans ended last week, and a spokesman for United Drug said there was currently no planned date for closure of the facility, although it is expected to shut down within the next nine to 12 months. The spokesman said: “The facility has been unprofitable for some time and, despite all our efforts, sales have remained relatively flat.

Don’t forget, many U.S. Co's are hiring! (We know you can’t resist.)
