Donald McLaren, Managing Director, McLaren Packaging, said, “Glenhaze offers a range of services that complement our broader product offering. We look forward to working alongside the team at Glenhaze to develop new business. We are retaining the Glenhaze premises in Bathgate, together with all 25 employees so, as far as Glenhaze customers and staff are concerned, it will be business as usual. A vital aspect of our interest in Glenhaze is our shared values as responsible employers and manufacturers.”

He continues, “With our capability to supply solid board divisions to the drinks sector, this acquisition adds another string to our bow and represents a logical addition to our overall product portfolio, enabling us to access a wider customer base with a broader range of products.”

Gary McCulloch, Managing Director, Glenhaze, added, “I’m delighted by this venture with McLaren Packaging which will benefit Glenhaze and our cusotmera through the provision of a seamless continuity of services, while giving them access to an even broader range of paper-based packaging products and look forward to working alongside the McLaren Packaging management team.”
