UK gener­ics mak­er shut­ters, elim­i­nat­ing 1,000 jobs

Three gener­ic drug­mak­ers have ceased op­er­a­tions im­me­di­ate­ly, as their hold­ing com­pa­ny has en­list­ed a con­sult­ing firm to over­see the process of ad­min­is­tra­tion as 1,000 em­ploy­ees lose their jobs.

Don­cast­er Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals Group, Tester­world, and Eclipse Gener­ics have brought on the con­sult­ing firm Kroll as it winds down its op­er­a­tions. The three whole­salers are all a part of the Con­verse Phar­ma Group, a ma­jor sup­pli­er of drugs that has more than 4,000 cus­tomers.
