Pharmaceutical company Catalent to lay off 400 Bloomington employees


Some Catalent employees will lose their jobs after Bloomington’s second largest employer said it will fire 400 workers, according to an email sent to Bloomington employees obtained by the Bloomingtonian

According to the email, employees will be notified by Dec. 2 if they have been laid off.  

Catalent is a pharmaceutical company based out of New Jersey that employs more than 19,000 workers, according to its website. Their Bloomington facility specializes in biomanufacturing and packaging.  

In March 2022, the City Council of Bloomington gave Catalent a $44 million tax credit to expand the facility and add 1,000 jobs.  

This is not the first time the pharmaceutical company has seen layoffs this year. In June, it eliminated 200 temporary positions in Bloomington. This month, in Catalent facilities in Texas and Maryland, 212 workers were let go. 

Catalent was not immediately available to comment Wednesday evening.
