Vidarla has continued to invest in the United Kingdom market, where it has had glass container production factories over the years. The group, headed by Carlos Delclaux, has bought bottling facilities in the city of Bristol for 30 million pounds sterling (over 34 million euros).
Alva Company has executed this campaign through its English investor Ensarc. The complex, called The Park, also houses a logistics infrastructure which is now integrated into the Ensarc structure.
There is more depth to the operation than the simple abstraction of some features. Vidrala has entered into an agreement with Accolade, one of the world’s leading wine producers, for long-term procurement of its wines and subsequent bottling in containers manufactured by Vidrala at the Bristol complex in Alton Centre, 193 kilometers away.
It is a comprehensive business development model. Accolade unloads its wines into Bristol Harbor and the park has dockside facilities. Vidrala then bottles those wines produced in Alton and ultimately uses the logistics capacity of its new subsidiary to meet demand in the southern part of the British market.
Over 30 million can leave the box park each year. Each of them had bottles filled with nine liters of liquor. According to Vidrala, these facilities do not generate waste and are neutral in CO2 emissions. Since 2019 they have their own wind farm with which they cover 100% of their own energy demand. Most of the park’s staff would transition to Encirc.
