Scottish packaging manufacturer Pitreavie is investing £3.8m (€4.5m) in a new corrugated box manufacturing facility near Glasgow, which will officially start operation in March.

Scottish Pitreavie Group, based in Aberdeen, is currently investing £3.8m (€4.5m) in a new corrugated box manufacturing facility in Cumbernauld (near Glasgow). The facility with a area of roughly 5.300 m² will be able to produce up to 30 million boxes per year. The plant will be officially opening in March 2020, a company spokesperson told EUWID.

The investment is part of Pitreavie's strategic plans to significantly expand reach and services in Scotland. In line with this strategy, the company has acquired Sorba-Freeze, Andersons Packaging, CP cases and Snapco Industrial Suppliers and has also seen continued organic growth.

The new plant will operate casemakers, flatbed and rotary die cutters, specialty multi point gluers, CAD and an ink dispensing kitchen. There will be no corrugator on site, so the plant will fed from UK-based corrugated sheet feeders, the spokesperson said.
