Carlsberg UK is investing £20 million in a new bottling plant at its brewer site inNorthampton, where the Carlsberg, Tuborg and San Miguel brands are produced. The 7,000 sq m facility, which has now been approved by West Northamptonshire Development Corporation’s planning committee is due to come on stream in 2013.

“Carlsberg UK is committed to Northampton and committed to brewing in the UK.  The green light on our plans to expand our brewery means we will create up to 60 new jobs in Northampton and be able to bottle double the amount of beer,” comments Matt Callan, supply chain director of Carlsberg UK.

The new facility will complement an existing bottling plant and three canning lines. Carlsberg UK completed an earlier £40 million expansion programme at Northampton in October 2011. This entailed expanding brewing capacity, the introduction of a third canning line and measures to improve energy efficiency and reduce waste.

The expansion of the Northampton site is in line with Carlsberg UK’s decision to close its brewery in Leeds in order to centralise production.
