McLaren Packaging Group marks anniversary with record turnover



Port-Glasgow headquartered McLaren Packaging Group has marked its 40th anniversary year with a record turnover and investment in new equipment. 

Established in 1979 as an independent supplier of corrugated cases to the whisky industry, McLaren Packaging has since expanded its operations across six facilities totalling 200,000 sq ft across central Scotland.

With 41 employees and a turnover of £8 million a decade ago, the group which was aiming for a £20 million turnover by 2020 now employs 240 staff and is on track to turnover over £30 million.

Michael McLaren, sales and marketing director, said: “We have just posted two consecutive years of record growth. While that growth can be partly attributed to some exceptional circumstances, we would anticipate that our growth will continue over the next few years albeit more modestly, our underlying business is robust.”

McLaren has invested £2.2 million in a new production line to enhance its printing and die-cutting capacity to support the future growth of its corrugate business.

“Over the last five years, 100% of our profits have been reinvested in the business in order to future-proof the company for the years ahead,” said McLaren.

“We are a family-business and are here for the long-term with our focus fixed firmly on further growth and reinvestment.”

The group will mark the occasion this weekend with an event for employees hosted at the local town hall.
