BCM Fareva propose the closure of their site in Beeston, Nottinghamshire – Usdaw to enter into consultation talks

Date: 30 June 2023 Cosmetic and pharmaceutical manufacturer Fareva has proposed the closure of their facility on the Boots site at Beeston in Nottinghamshire, putting hundreds of jobs at risk. The French company bought BCM (Boots Contract Manufacturing) in 2017. The business will now enter a period of collective consultation with staff whose roles are affected.
Mark Wheatley – Usdaw Area Organiser says: “BCM Fareva have today briefed staff at their manufacturing facility in Beeston Nottinghamshire that they are proposing to close the site. This is obviously devastating news for the staff and the local community.
“We will now enter into consultation talks with the company, where we will interrogate the business case for their decision. In the meantime we are providing our members with the support, advice and representation they require at the very difficult time, as we seek to secure the best deal possible.”
