Eurostampa to expand operations with new North Lanarkshire facility

08 Jun 2023 • 3 minute read

International packaging firm Eurostampa has announced a multi-million-pound investment in a new Cumbernauld facility.

Italian-owned packaging firm Eurostampa has announced plans to expand its operations through a multi-million pound investment — supported by Scottish Enterprise — in a new Cumbernauld facility.

Eurostampa invests in sustainability

Eurostampa, an Italian packaging firm with a base in Glasgow, has announced plans to move to a new facility in Cumbernauld as part of a multi-million-pound investment.

Eurostampa is a family-owned company with more than 50 years of experience in high-quality label printing for food, drinks and cosmetics.  

The firm’s investment will see its factory space almost double compared with its previous facility in Glasgow. The move to a larger and more modern facility in Cumbernauld will allow the business to meet market demand and reduce its carbon emissions. 

Growing with support from Scottish Enterprise

The announcement was marked by a visit to the new Gilmour & Dean (Eurostampa UK) site from Shona Robison, Scotland's Deputy First Minister, and Adrian Gillespie, CEO of Scottish Enterprise.

Scottish Enterprise is Scotland's economic development agency and has supported Eurostampa's investment in North Lanarkshire. 

Steven Thompson, Chairman of Eurostampa UK, said:

“Eurostampa is making the single biggest investment in the company’s history here in Scotland. This underlines our commitment as a strategic supplier to the Scotch whisky industry. 

“As a family business, investment is core to our strategy. We are delighted with the grant from Scottish Enterprise but also with the support that they have given throughout the project. 

“As well as providing us with the capacity to meet our increasing customer demand, our new facility in North Lanarkshire will help us increase efficiency through an optimised manufacturing process that will put us well on track to achieving our sustainability targets.”

Gian Franco Cillario, CEO of Eurostampa, said:

“We decided to invest in Scotland — making our largest single investment of about £30 million in this brand-new, great facility — because we saw in Scotland an opportunity for future growth.

"Our new facility will create extra capacity and help us better support our customers.  It will also create a better environment for our employees and let them work better together, which will boost engagement.

“Eurostampa’s commitment is not just to stay in Scotland, but to continue to invest in the long term.”
