Norbert Dentressangle cleans up in Scotland

Norbert Dentressangle has invested in a new clean room to accommodate ‘white glove’ contract packing activities at its Eurocentral facility at Mossend, near Motherwell in Scotland.

The 6,500 sq ft facility provides a purpose-designed environment for the provision of a range of packing, inspection and quality control services, primarily for premium and luxury products which require a clean environment and precise and careful handling, as well as providing additional capacity and flexibility within the existing contract packing operation at the site.

Established in 2009, the contract packing operation is a joint venture between Norbert Dentressangle and RESCU Solutions and provides a complete range of services including re-packing products from large to smaller cases, preparing and packing gift packs or glass sets, adding neck collars, ribbons or seals and decorating glass bottles, as well as quality inspection of bottles, cartons or cases, both for drinks companies and their suppliers.

With customers including Maxxium, Glenmorangie and Whyte & Mackay, the existing operation occupies a 15,000 sq ft, bonded area with 12 re-working lines, each capable of processing 250,000 bottles per week and a workforce of more than 70 colleagues. Providing the capacity to undertake additional work for both existing and new customers, it is expected that the new facility will lead to the creation of additional jobs in the future.

Gerard Friel, Norbert Dentressangle’s Account Director for Scotland said: “In partnership with RESCU, our contract packing operation has grown rapidly over the last three years as we have expanded our customer base and the range of services we provide and the new clean room represents an important addition to our capabilities.

“Along with contract packing, we offer a complete range of warehousing, distribution and supply chain management services, both in Scotland and worldwide, providing our customers with a one-stop supply chain solution.”
