Allied Glass Containers Ltd is set to open its first Scottish operation within Maxim Office Park at Eurocentral.

A leading glass packaging company specialising in spirit bottles, Allied Glass boasts an extensive and high profile client list including The Famous Grouse Whisky, Bulldog Gin, Phraya Rum and Glen’s Vodka.

The company is taking 2,088 sq ft within Maxim 3 on a five-year lease and will be operational on-site later this year.

It is anticipated this move will see Allied Glass create around 50 jobs at Eurocentral.

Philip Morris, sales and marketing director at Allied Glass, said: “We are delighted to be opening our new office in Scotland at Maxim Office Park.

“This is a strategic decision to be closer to customers, offering a more flexible and personal service as we look to expand our business in the premium whisky and spirit sector.”

Craig Ritchie from Maxim Office Park was delighted to welcome the newest arrival.

He said: “Allied Glass chose Maxim based on its great location and first rate accommodation.

“A highly successful business working with global brands, it’s fantastic that Allied Glass has picked out Maxim as the best place to begin its operations in Scotland and grow its already thriving client list.”

Cushman & Wakefield and Ryden represented Maxim Office Park and Sanderson Weatherall, Leeds acted on behalf of Allied Glass to conclude the deal.
