Brewery expands operations
4:01pm Tuesday 9th October 2012 in News
ONE of the region’s breweries has invested in a new transport and distribution centre to consolidate its operations.
The Black Sheep Brewery at Masham has taken over the former Danby’s Foods factory on Fearby Road, to expand its facilities and operate more efficiently.
The distribution centre was originally based in Well, near Bedale, because of the lack of space and restrictions on greenbelt land surrounding the brewery but will now operate from the new premises by the main brewery.
Managi8n director Rob Theakston said: “We are delighted to be bringing our delivery trucks and warehouse facility home to Masham.
“We’ve been looking at relocating our distribution centre for some time, in order to operate from one main site, and Danby’s Foods warehouse becoming available was the perfect opportunity to move our facilities.”
He added: “We have invested in new premises to keep services central and it is great to have the entire team working from Masham again.
“Being our 20th anniversary this year it was the perfect time to make the move, highlighting that we are constantly investing and improving our services for customers.”
