    Sunhope Packaging Machinery is establishing a new UK division in Glenrothes.

    With a growing demand for a return to paper bags, the business has become one of the largest manufacturers of paper bag machines and ancillary equipment for the packaging industry in China, along with strong market presence in south Asia.

    Sunhope collaborated with Scottish Development International and InvestFife to identify and acquire the site at Southfield Industrial Estate. This is being refurbished mostly by local Fife businesses, to serve as a modern facility and demonstration hub, showcasing Sunhope machines to potential customers from the UK, Europe and North America.

    Sunhope obtained net zero grant funding to assist with the construction of sustainable business in Fife through Business Gateway Fife, along with business advice and support from Scottish Enterprise.

    The new factory will also serve as a training hub for customers’ personnel.
