UK Brewery Closure

A company announced in November its plans to close its brewery operations, following the loss of contract brewing volumes.
The consultation process is underway with the workers at the site as the end of May 2015 closure date looms for the 108 employees. The site has an annual capacity of 2.6 million hectolitres and has been running close to maximum capacity in recent years despite being a keg beer only brewery.
The company is currently completing a five-year, 75 million redevelopment of the one of its other brewing sites. One of the projects was the 21 million investment in a high-speed bottling line.
A packaging engineering solutions provider from the NW is able to provide decommissioning and relocation services to companies who are moving production lines following closure or expansion. The experience engineers are able to project manage works from beginning to end, including line evaluation, modification and the integration of new equipment with existing conveying. The company has a vast experience of providing blue chip companies with high speed conveying and end of line machinery suitable to the food and beverage FMG industries.
