Drinks company expansion to bring 80 jobs to Rugby

Andy Morris 5th Feb, 2018   0

A SOFT drinks company which has been based in Rugby for over 30 years is to create around 80 jobs as part of a £100m investment at its Rugby site.

Britvic is introducing three new production lines at the Glebe Farm Industrial Estate site, and groundworks have started for a new on-site warehouse and aseptic line which will improve logistics planning and reduce road miles.

The company’s chief supply chain officer Clive Hooper said: “The site has undergone significant change in the last 30 years, from the 80s when we manually produced drinks, through to the 90s when we moved to full automation, to our position today as owners of some of the fastest can lines in Europe.

“I am looking forward to welcoming new team members to Rugby over the next 12 months as we continue to invest in our Rugby site.”




The new jobs will include roles for technical operators, engineers and team leaders.

The site currently employs 176 people.
