Inside Pitreavie Group's Cumbernauld Corrugated Box manufacturing plant

PITREAVIE Group announced a further one-million-pound investment in new plant and machinery at its Cumbernauld Corrugated Box manufacturing plant.

The investment comes just a year and a half after the opening of the £3.8m sheet plant – Scotland’s first new sheet plant in 20 years. The state-of-the-art manufacturing site features an innovation centre, where customers can visit and create bespoke packaging solutions, taking design samples home with them on the same day.

Remaining committed to future growth plans, the £1m investment in brand-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 skilled jobs to date with a further seven to be created once new equipment arrives.

Pitreavie Group MD Stephen Heslop says, “we are delighted with the progress we have made since our initial investment in late 2019, with demand from both our existing customers and new customers having surpassed our expectations.”

Despite the Cumbernauld site being launched at the outset of COVID-19 and navigating through Brexit, Pitreavie Group have stayed committed to providing customers with the innovative, eco-friendly packaging solutions they need, and as a result have continued to thrive.

Pitreavie Group Manufacturing Director Scott Alexander says, “I am really excited about the future and delighted to have placed the orders for the new equipment which will further enhance our overall capability”.

Pitreavie Group operate sites in Aberdeen, Glenrothes and Cumbernauld, which are home to some of the most experienced professionals in the packaging industry. The 12-year-old company specialises in packaging solutions and products, corrugated packaging, chilled packaging, timber crates, and transit cases.
