More than 40 staff at Catalent have been told this week that they are to be without a job by the end of the year, along with several temporary staff. It has been confirmed by the company, which employs 500 staff at its base in Frankland Road, Blagrove Industrial Estate, that the job losses come as a result of restructuring at the site.
