UK-based corrugated packaging producer Cepac is investing £2m to expand its site at Rawcliffe Bridge in East Yorkshire.
The investment follows the company’s £1m spending to double the size of its Doncaster site.
The Rawcliffe site offers corrugated supply chain solutions, especially multi-point glued heavyweight board grades for performance applications. It includes regular cases, rotary die cut, flat bed die cut, stitched boxes, palette boxes and pre-print boxes.
Cepac is constructing a new 45000ft² production and warehousing facility at its site in Rawcliffe Bridge, for a good workflow and create more storage space.
The new facility will also enable the firm to optimize the output from its new multi point gluer..
Cepac has doubled the turnover and increased the number of employees from 75 to 125 since its purchase of the Rawcliffe site in 2013.
The Rawcliffe site is a major supplier to Jaguar Land Rover, Ideal Boilers, and Iceland Foods. It was initially developed for the manufacture of graphic papers, has produced paper based materials for over 130 years.
Rawcliffe Bridge factory general manager Richard Moore said: “Cepac has invested in our site since the acquisition and this latest phase represents the most significant investment at the site for many years.
“The improvements really secure the long-term future of Rawcliffe and underpin its continued growth and our ability to service our customers, in addition to continuing to provide increased employment opportunities.
“This investment will enable us to partner with many new customers and increase our service offering to our existing customer base.”, Moore added.
