Where the Parkwest Business Park site had been leased, the Keeper Road site is wholly-owned by C&C.
Additional bonded storage capacity remains available at the Group’s Clonmel operation which will service the South of the country with beers and wines.
While no precise cost has been given, the Group is spending a “considerable amount” of money in renovating and upscaling the Keeper Road site.
It has already invested some €1 million in a new IT system and a similar amount is expected to be spend on Health & Safety investments in the Group.
The Keeper Road development represents another step towards C&C’s aim of consolidating all the business on one site.
“Being part of a bigger group means that both C&C and Gleeson have a phenomenal amount of bonded space available to them at our Clonmel site,” C&C’s Commerical Director of Irish business Alan Daly told Drinks Industry Ireland, “However our customers will still enjoy the high service levels they’ve always enjoyed from the Group,” he emphasised.
The Keeper Road offices are currently being renovated in preparation for the move and “a very small number of redundancies” are likely to take place as a result, he added.
