Brewery will produce over 300 million extra pints of beer a year

Miller Construction has completed the extension of Carlsberg’s UK brewery – which will produce over 300 million extra pints of beer a year.

The contractor built two new buildings at the Danish beer giant’s Northampton facility, which will now be able to produce a staggering 1.1 billion pints a year.

Chris Webster, chief executive of Miller Construction, said: “We are delighted to have completed works for Carlsberg at their main UK brewery in Northampton, on what was a challenging project for the team working in a live environment during Carlsberg’s normal production process. 

“Throughout the job we have undertaken a number of complexities which are faced within a live environment, ensuring continued service for the brewery and maintaining the highest health and safety standards for Carlsberg and our own employees.

“This project illustrates our ability to deliver quality production facilities in the industrial environment and we look forward to securing future work in this important market.

Henriette Kristup, supply chain director at Carlsberg UK, said: “We are delighted with our new facility which has increased our production capacity at Northampton.  The Miller Construction team were tasked with the difficult job of operating in a live environment while ensuring that our production was maintained.

“Our brewery in Northampton is one of the most efficient and up-to-date breweries in the UK, enabling us to maintain our position at the forefront of the UK beer market.”
