CHIVAS BROTHERS INVESTMENT PROPOSAL – UPDATE

CHIVAS BROTHERS INVESTMENT PROPOSAL – UPDATE 

 

On 2nd November we announced our intention to invest £40 million in a new, integrated and state-of-the-art plant on our Kilmalid site in Dumbarton.

We have now come to the end of an extensive consultation process during which we engaged closely with employees. 

After reviewing all of this input we can confirm that we will move forward with our investment proposal.

We want to ensure the very best possible transition to our new facility and so while the official consultation process has now closed, we will hold individual consultation meetings with every employee who wishes to have one. We will also establish working groups covering two key themes; travel and transport and flexible working.

We want to deliver this important project by the end of 2019. It will be a major driver of the entire Chivas Brothers business and we are confident it will lay the foundation for future success. 

As previously stated, there will be jobs available for all permanent employees currently based at Paisley.

The project will see the transfer of operations and activities from Paisley to Kilmalid commencing in 2018, with everyone based on the Paisley site moving to Kilmalid by the end of 2019.

The investment is a sign of our confidence in the future of Scotch whisky and in our business. It also confirms our commitment to operating in Scotland and to building a strong future in Dumbarton where we have an 80-year history.

The initial phase of implementation will begin in the coming weeks.
