Pitreavie Group invests £3.8 million in new manufacturing site
Pitreavie Group, one of Scotland’s leading providers of packaging solutions, has announced its plans to launch a new £3.8 million corrugated box manufacturing facility in Cumbernauld.
Once fully commissioned the 57,000 square foot site will bring an additional 35 new skilled jobs to Scotland and will see the company offer a significantly enhanced range of packaging solutions to its client 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.
‘Opening this new facility has allowed us to expand our workforce and we have plans to employ a further 35 people over the next three years.
‘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 clients.’
‘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 here in Scotland.’
Pitreavie Group has sites across Scotland and Worcester. The new site officially opens in March 2020 and is located in Westfield, Cumbernauld.
