A Wiltshire electronics manufacturer has announced it plans to make 50 workers redundant.
Exception EMS, based in Harris Road on the Porte Marsh Industrial Estate in Calne, employs 200 staff.
A spokesman for the company said the move had been due to the general downturn in the global economy.
He added that a fall in orders for the firm, along with having difficulties predicting demand, were also factors in the decision.
Managing director Richard Brighton said he was doing all he could to support affected staff members.
