Post Time:Nov 12,2012Classify:Company NewsView:538



The Cobevco launch is part of Quinn’s £500 million investment in its two purpose-built manufacturing plants in Northern Ireland and Cheshire. Cobevco’s bottling operation will now be based at the Cheshire site, which provides a fully integrated supply chain solution including glass manufacture, bottling, bonded storage and onward distribution to the UK and Europe.

“As the beverage market becomes increasingly globalised, products need to travel larger distances to get to market, which can be costly,” said Adrian Curry, Managing Director of Cobevco. “Overheads within the supply chain are also escalating because of rising fuel prices and duty fees. As a result, a growing number of producers are utilising bulk importing and bottling at destination as a more efficient and environmentally sound route to market.


“As a specialist bottling brand, Cobevco will meet this increased industry demand with a highly efficient and responsive combination of facilities and expertise - catering for importers and home producers alike.”


Cobevco will invest a further £3.5 million in its Cheshire plant in early 2013 to further improve its capacity. The company also aims to strengthen ties with the Australian and Chilean wine industries and anticipates its output volumes of wine and carbonated products will double by Q1 2014.


“By launching Cobevco, we have been able to bring our already significant bottling expertise together under one brand and make provisions for the increased demands of the drinks sector. We will now be providing the market with the most innovative bottling technologies available today and helping producers, importers and merchants to control costs and speed up the route to market, while crucially maintaining quality of product,” Curry concluded.
