A premier packaging supplier in the UK is investing around £1.5 million to expand its headquarters in Coventry.
Kite Packaging is developing its base in Torrington Avenue, Tile Hill, to update and modernise its warehouse facilities servicing Midlands and online customers, and to create extra capacity.
The work is being carried out by Wigley Building and Development, the construction arm of The Wigley Group, a leading commercial property company based in Middlemarch Business Park, Coventry.
Gavin Ashe, managing partner at Kite Packaging, said: “It is a significant expansion of the site with the creation of a state-of-the-art pick and pack operation and extra warehousing for our Midlands key accounts, and a near doubling of our national distribution centre.
“One of the key drivers is creating extra space for our growth and this will certainly lead to more jobs. We are currently growing our team by more than 12 and are looking to double this during the next two years.”
Kite Packaging has seen rapid growth since being founded as an employee-owned business in 2001, and establishing its site at Torrington Avenue in 2007, to become one of the largest distributors in the UK.
It has built up a strong regional branch network across the UK with six sites including Coventry. Its e-commerce operation and waste compliance business are also based at Torrington Avenue.
