DS Smith to expand Belper plant

DS Smith revealed plans of expanding its Belper plant with an investment of £6m to scale up production of recycled corrugated packaging, as part of plans to add 50% to overall production capacity.

According to the firm, the move would enable sustained production of industry-leading quality packaging, reported packagingnews.co.uk.

The present phase of construction, which represents the first stage of expansion, is being taken up by Bower and Kirkland, a local firm.

The Belper plant employs 170 people, and has been manufacturing printed corrugated boxes, which can be seen on supermarket shelves across the country.
