Waterloo Brewing Ltd., Ontario’s largest Canadian-owned brewery, is investing $13.4 million to meet demand. The project will include expansion of its brewing and blending capacity as well as the installation of a new can line.
“Our business has been experiencing significant growth over the past several years and we are investing to ensure that we can continue to satisfy the ongoing growth demand” stated George Croft, president and CEO, Waterloo Brewing. “The investment in capacity and capability is consistent with our very disciplined and strategic approach to capital and the return we expect.”
Croft says being able to develop, produce and sell an ever-increasing range of products is essential to success, and the company’s state-of-the art facility will be capable of producing almost every style of beer, cider, cooler and seltzer efficiently.
The new line will double canning capacity to 900 thousand hectolitres and increase overall packaging capacity to more than 1.4 million hectolitres.
