The new can line started up on March 22, 2021 as planned and will be at full capacity by the end of April 2021
Waterloo Brewing Ltd. announced that its previously announced expansion project is still on track despite significant global Covid-19 supply chain and labour restrictions. The new can line started up on March 22 and is on track to be at full operating capacity by the end of April 2021 as originally planned. The liquid capacity enhancing projects are also on schedule.
The second blending system along with alcohol storage tanks and four new fermenters for beer and cider production are already installed and fully operational. Four additional fermenters, the last of the key liquid capacity projects will be installed and operational by the end of May 2021.
Once completed, the plant will have an overall plant capacity of 1.4 million hectoliters per year.
