Supermarkets and off-licences sold more beer than pubs and clubs for the first time last year and Marston’s saw take-home trade grow by more than 10% in the last 12 months so is now expanding on-site storage to keep pace.

The buildings, supplied by Spaciotempo, will create room for as many as 14 million bottles of beer and are the final stage of major plans to increase production at the site following the installation of a new £7.4 million bottling plant.

Emma Gilleland, director of brewing for Marston's, said:

We've seen significant growth in the take-home market over the last couple of years. More people than ever before are enjoying a drink in the comfort of their own home, so we have invested to ensure supply keeps up with demand.
The bottling plant, which opened last year, was the first stage of that plan and these new storage facilities will give us the huge amount of extra warehouse capacity we need.

Spaciotempo are replacing two of its existing warehouses at the Burton site with new units that will create a massive 8,500 square metres of storage and space for 13,500 pallets. Work to erect four 6m-high buildings, each measuring 30 x 85m, is due to start next week and is expected to be completed in just three months.
