    Default Britvic invests £100m in Rugby factory

    Britvic has invested £100m as part of its ambition to make its Rugby factory “a world-class manufacturing site”.

    The drinks manufacturer is spending £240m on its British manufacturing over a three-year period.

    Earlier this year the company created around 80 jobs at the site, which includes technical operators, engineers and team leaders.

    The Rugby site has had three PET bottling lines installed, a new on-site warehouse and an aseptic line to manufacture preservative-free drinks, which will improve logistics planning and reduce road miles, helping the company to reduce its carbon footprint.

    In addition, the company has introduced three can lines which are amongst the fastest in the Europe, collectively producing up to 6,000 cans per minute.

    Britvic’s steel can formats have also moved to aluminium cans, enabling Britvic to reduce the amount of metal it uses annually by 8,000 tonnes.

    Mark Pawsey, MP for Rugby and Bulkington, has visited the site to see the effects the investment has had.

    Jeremy Howard, director of production at Britvic, said: “It is a proud moment for the team here and for all our partners who have supported us in our ambition to create a world-class manufacturing site.

    “Sustainability remains at the heart of our business and this project. Through our GB investment programme, we are investing for the future and remain committed to continuing to make a positive difference to our communities and to the world around us – helping to make it healthier, happier, and more sustainable.”

    Good news and possibly a commitment for the longer term.
