Close Brothers today announced that it has renamed its brewery rentals division ‘Close Brothers Brewery Rentals’.
The re-brand will cover all aspects of the division’s business streams and product areas, including long-term container rental, ECasks, container maintenance and equipment finance.
Managing a fleet of approximately 1.4million casks and kegs, Close Brothers Brewery Rentals will continue to provide the highest level of customer service via its experienced and specialist teams based at the Ringwood Head Office in Hampshire, as well as those in Ledbury, Herefordshire and Thurnscoe, South Yorkshire.
Launched in 2007 as a subsidiary of Close Brothers Group, the division acquired ECasks in 2008 and CBR Container Services in 2010. The division is also a SIBA Gold Standard Sponsor, as well as an associate member of the British Food and Beverage Institute and the British Beer and Pub Association.
Paul Sherman, Managing Director of Close Brothers Brewery Rentals commented, “As part of one of the oldest and most respected merchant banks in the UK, Close Brothers Brewery Rentals is now able to harness the positive association and customer-led service proposition that comes with the wider ‘Close Brothers’ name.
“We have vast experience in the brewery rentals sector and will continue to support customers with both innovative funding packages and the provision of new keg and cask solutions.”
