St Austell Brewery named UK Manufacturer of the Year 2017

Tribute ale St Austell Brewery

T&J installations client, St Austell Brewery, has been awarded Manufacturer of the Year by Made in the UK Awards 2017. This was in recognition of its achievements in beer production over the course of the last twelve months.

T&J was instructed almost two years ago to be St Austell’s sole technical services provider assisting with the national roll out of its Cornish lager brand, Korev.

The brewery, responsible for beers such as Tribute and Proper Job, had been dissatisfied with its existing service provider and wanted to have the right engineers for its operational needs. Since T&J has been instructed, it has also installed dispense equipment for Mena dhu, St Austell’s stout, and various other brews.

In July 2016, St Austell acquired the brewer, Bath Ales, and very soon after T&J was required to install for Bath’s Gem Ale.

Andrew Ferguson, Sales Manager at St Austell, said: “We made a great choice with T&J. Our previous technical services provider simply wasn’t meeting the timescales or quality we needed with regards to installations and maintenance.

“We’ve had a great year, and T&J has supported us throughout. The award is testament to the hard work of the entire St Austell team and that of its supply chain, as well as our strong growth strategy.

“We continue to grow the portfolio of quality beers we own, and quality is something T&J absolutely understands. Their installations have ensured the best possible pour for each beer we introduce to a customer’s drinks list.”

T&J’s National Operations Manager, Antony Collins, said: “Working with St Austell and forming the necessary working relationship has been very easy. We tailored our service to work alongside their structure of operations, responding to the requirements of individual sales representatives. When they have sold the beer to an establishment, they contact us to carry out the installation works.

“The growth of the company, even within the short time we have worked with them, has been impressive and the award is well earned.”
