As part of its commitment to the continuous improvement of its supply chain, Britvic has announced a £26.9 million investment into the future of its factory at Rugby in England, Britvic’s largest production site. The investment will see the installation of a fourth canning line, growing the site’s total capacity by a further 18%. As a result, Britvic expects to create at least 20 new jobs at the facility.

The efficient new set-up will produce recyclable 330ml cans for Britvic’s portfolio of leading brands including Tango, Pepsi and 7UP. The first cans are expected to be produced this November, with the new line fully up and running in 2022.

The new jobs will be predominantly in engineering and manufacturing, helping to build upon Britvic’s role as a leading employer within the community. Apprentices will also play a vital role during the expansion, filling some of the engineering roles and assisting with improvement projects as production commences.

The news is further evidence of Britvic’s continued investment in its supply chain and follows the completion of the transformative £250 million Business Capability Programme, improving facilities for the benefit of colleagues and customers.

Paul Graham, Britvic GB Managing Director, commented: “This is yet another milestone on our growth journey, investing in both our supply chain and our people. This new, state of the art canning line will be a fantastic boost for Britvic’s Rugby facility which continues to produce recyclable cans for some of our most popular brands. We look forward to using this additional capacity as a platform to drive further innovation.”

Britvic is the largest supplier of branded still soft drinks in Great Britain and the number two supplier of branded carbonated soft drinks.
