Scotland-based Pitreavie Group has announced its plans to open a new £3.8m state-of-the-art corrugated box plant in Westfield, Cumbernauld as of March 2020.
Once fully commissioned, the 57,000 sq ft site will bring an additional 35 jobs to Scotland and will see the company offer a significantly enhanced range of packaging solutions to its customer base. The new facility will have the capability to produce more than 30 million boxes per year.
Established in 2010, Pitreavie Group, has ambitious plans to expand its reach and services in Scotland. Continued strong organic growth as well as strategic acquisitions of Sorba-Freeze, Andersons Packaging, CP Cases and Snapco Industrial Supplies has allowed the business to expand its range of knowledge, products and services significantly. The new manufacturing site is a major step in the evolution of the group as it continues to identify new markets and opportunities.
Group Managing Director, Stephen Heslop, said, “This is a pivotal moment for Pitreavie Group. We have had our teams working since October to get our new premises up and running. A major investment in new equipment will allow the business to step up a gear and provide an even greater level of service for our customers.”
He continues, “We genuinely believe we have one of the most knowledgeable, innovative and passionate teams in the industry which ensures that we can provide consistent quality to our customers. In the past year, we have invested in our people and our businesses and we have seen them go from strength to strength – this new site further reinforces our position in the UK market as well as in Scotland.”
