Kite Packaging is forecasting the creation of another 170 jobs following the opening of its new site in Coventry.
The campus at Puma Park adds almost 190,000 sq ft to Kite Packaging’s operations, with the group’s Coventry capacity now standing at 380,000 sq ft.
As well as a meeting room suite, canteen and breakout space, the site is home to a dedicated educational facility, providing on-site training for employees and customers.
Councillor Jim O’Boyle, cabinet member for jobs, regeneration and climate change, said: “Our teams have worked closely with Kite Packaging for a number of years to support their expansion and helped them find suitable locations within the city to really help the business grow. It’s fantastic to see businesses adapting greener initiatives and accessing the support on offer.
“We work hard to support businesses in the city, whether that’s establishing new businesses, supporting post-Covid recovery or assisting businesses in expansion. Securing and developing businesses creates jobs for local people and supports the economy, so we want to make sure businesses get the help they need.”
“As a result of this investment in the new site, Kite Packaging are forecasting the creation of another 170 jobs in addition to the staff already employed across its Coventry operations.”
