Alcohols Limited new distillery and head office completed by Clegg

Clegg Food Projects is really pleased to have completed the construction of a new head office, production, and distribution centre for Alcohols Limited, located in Rugby.

Alcohols Limited produce, store, and distribute a range of fine alcohols chemical solvents and hydrocarbon products to a wide range of business sectors. From drinks, personal care, healthcare and pharmaceutical, through to packaging, specialty coatings, automotive, and chemical manufacturing industries.

The multi-million-pound investment will bring together the company’s head office, currently in Bishop’s Stortford, and its two divisions – the Langley Distillery in Birmingham and its storage and distribution facility in London. The firm’s Oldbury site will be retained, focused on supporting innovation with an interactive visitor centre to promote the history of gin and highlight its considerable heritage.

The building therefore incorporates a new state-of-the-art distillery, process plant, head office, and large span portal frame structure for storage and distribution.

Oliver Jenkins, business development manager at Clegg Food Projects, said: “We are thrilled to have completed this project for Alcohols Limited. The design and concept were challenging as we needed to incorporate lots of moving parts to ensure the structure was feasible and offered the most practical use of space.

“We adapted to the changing brief, with our design and construction team participating in coordination meetings with the Alcohols team and their specialist suppliers and consultants. The construction sequence was continually updated and modified as the client finalised the details of the operations.

“The result is an ultra-modern facility with state-of-the-art technology that I know the whole team will be very proud to call their HQ.”
