Robertson to lead £50 million West Lothian packaging facility construction



Robertson will lead construction of a new packaging production facility in West Lothian after being awarded an £18m contract by SAICA Group.

The Spanish packaging giant, which is establishing a £50m plant in Livingston, has now appointed the Scottish construction group to deliver the project.

The current building on the site, formerly a distribution centre for a leading supermarket chain, will be converted into a cardboard manufacturing facility, as SAICA Pack aims to increase capacity.

The main building will be retained and refurbished, while several extensions and modifications will be made to accommodate equipment.

Enabling works have completed on the site at Deans Industrial Estate, with the main works due to get underway later this month.

SAICA Pack will decommission its current sites in Edinburgh and Milngavie as it consolidates its Scottish operations, with its Grangemouth Sheet Plant due to remain in operation.

Adam Haycock, regional director at SAICA Pack Scotland, said: “This is a significant step forward for SAICA in Scotland and one that demonstrates our continued commitment to the Scottish market.”

David Cairns, managing director for Robertson Central East, said: “This is a significant project for SAICA Pack as they bring their Scottish operations together and we are delighted to have been appointed as the construction partner who will bring their vision for the site to life.”

Construction is due to complete in December, with SAICA Pack intending to open the new site directly after completion.
