Fife Packaging Centre of Excellence
Fife Scotland-based Pitreavie has revealed ambitious investment plans for 2019 including the creation of a new 5000 sq. ft. office complex and an additional 40,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space at its Glenrothes head office. The announcement follows investment into the business last year, as well as the acquisition of UK-based Taylors Industrial Supplies of Worcester in December 2018 and Aberdeen based Leipers Associated Packaging in January 2019.
The acquisition of Leipers Associated Packaging takes the number of Aberdeen based businesses owned by Pitreavie to three, where it will operate in conjunction with CP Cases and the former Anderson Packaging. The increased presence in the area signals further expansion in the North East as all three businesses will be moving to new premises in the city, where under one roof they will be one of the largest packing suppliers in the North East.
Expansion at Pitreavie’s HQ will allow for the creation of a Packaging Centre of Excellence where customers can visit to learn about new to market products and how best to package and transport their products. With a state of the art digital printer and cutting table Pitreavie will be able to work in a live environment with customers on design solutions as well as offering a supply solutions showroom featuring some of the latest global packaging innovations. Completion is expected by September.
