Packaging group invests £1 million in new new plant and equipment



Pitreavie Group has announced a £1m investment in new plant and machinery at its Cumbernauld corrugated box manufacturing plant.

This comes just a year and a half after the opening of the £3.8m plant – Scotland’s first new sheet plant in 20 years.

The new manufacturing site features an innovation centre, where customers can create bespoke packaging solutions, taking design samples home with them on the same day.

The investment into new equipment includes a Bobst Folder Gluer and another Eterna Flat Bed die cutter, which will arrive this autumn and support further expansion of the business.

Pitreavie has invested a total £5m into the Cumbernauld site, creating 25 new jobs to date, with a further seven to be created following the arrival of the new equipment.

Pitreavie Group managing director Stephen Heslop said: “Despite the Cumbernauld site being launched at the outset of Covid-19 and navigating through Brexit, we have stayed committed to providing customers with the innovative, eco-friendly packaging solutions they need, and as a result have continued to thrive.”

The 12-year-old company specialises in packaging solutions and products, corrugated packaging, chilled packaging, timber crates and transit cases. It operates sites in Aberdeen, Glenrothes and Cumbernauld.
