Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company (CMBC) and Stonegate Group have announced a new ten-year commercial and business partnership to start in spring 2024.
This expansion of CMBC’s logistics network will see 29 new vehicles added to the company’s fleet, as well as investment in depots on a national scale. The move is expected to create around 100 new jobs within logistics, distribution and warehousing.
Paul Davies CEO of CMBC said: “This is a momentous agreement for both CMBC and Stonegate Group, securing a long-term partnership to deliver a range of our fantastic beer brands into thousands of Stonegate Group’s excellent pubs. We are extremely proud to become Stonegate Group’s lead logistics partner and our entire logistics team are excited to work closely with them over the coming years to ensure we deliver a fantastic experience to landlords and drinkers across the country.”
Melissa Wisdom, chief commercial officer for the Stonegate Group, said: “We look forward to working with CMBC to provide an excellent logistics service to our pubs, thereby ensuring availability of products for our guests. We are excited to add CMBC premium beers to our range for our guests to enjoy.”
As well as managing cask and keg deliveries CMBC will see their premium beer brands such as Brooklyn Pilsner and Birrificio Angelo Poretti be made more widely available at Stonegate’s 4,500 sites. Stonegate is the largest pub group in the UK and operates popular high street chains such as Slug and Lettuce and Be at One.
