Significant Investment At Macphie

23rd May 2019 Paul Andrews

Macphie has announced a seven-figure investment in its North Lanarkshire production site.

The expansion and refurbishment of its current site at Tannochside Business Park in Uddingston is due to existing space constraints.

A five-year lease has been signed on an adjoining 17,400 sq ft site with a £140,000 refit carried out at the property.

Meanwhile, the site expansion has led to a further £300,000 being invested in the installation of a new waste water treatment plant on the Tannochside site.

This maintains the effective management of the local water environment, protecting the environment even with the predicted increased production at the factory.

Sustainable growth

Chairman Alastair Macphie said: “A lot has changed in the industry since we took over the site in 2000, but Macphie retains the same long-term commitment to sustainable, profitable growth."

“With several significant new business wins with international brands under our belt, this investment is essential as we gear ourselves up to take advantage of the many commercial opportunities out there in the marketplace."

“Already in the last three years we have invested £750,000 in state-of-the-art new equipment at our Tannochside site, with an additional £5million invested in technology across the business."

“We are proud to demonstrate our continuing confidence in the future and long-term commitment to success.”

Established in 1928, Macphie employs around 300 workers across two production sites, with around 70 members of the workforce based at its Tannochside facility.
