Saltaire's ownership expands

18 Jun 2019

Brewery directors become shareholders

After two years of investment and expansion in the capacity of Saltaire to increase our beer production and start packaging, our latest development is the expansion of ownership to include sales director Nick Helliwell and operations director Dan Spampinato. Until now, Saltaire was wholly owned by our founder, Tony Gartland and managing director, Ewen Gordon.

Since 2017 we've invested more than £3m in a new 40bbl brewhouse and a new 1,000 square metre packaging plant to create a contract brewing and bottling business, launched in March. This is attracting new business to the extent that we now brew 65,000 litres of beer, and bottle 70,000 bottles, a week. 

Tony Gartland said, "Recognising the need for long term stability in the management team and the contribution made by Nick and Dan during this significant period of expansion, we're pleased to be able to offer them the opportunity to share in the value of the business as it continues to grow. Both have significantly added to the quality of the Board and it is the next logical step to invite them to take part in the ownership structure."

Ewen added, "Nick and Dan both come from a financial services background. Nick spent 15 years working in sales management before developing his experience in his own, US-based, wine business while Dan has strengths in planning, compliance, risk and quality management, demonstrated by his management of the new packaging plant initiative from conception to completion. It’s great that our team of directors not only manages the business day-to-day, but is also now invested in the future of the business as shareholders."

Saltaire's new shareholders celebrate. Cheers! L-R: Nick, Ewen and Dan.
