Adam Firby, HR and facilities director at Molson Coors, said: “We can confirm that we have agreed terms to move our UK headquarters to the National Brewery Centre in the heart of Burton town centre.
“Since agreeing to sell our current head office site to support Burton town centre’s redevelopment, we’ve been focused on finding a new head office home in Burton. Our priority was always to try and stay in the town centre if at all possible, which is why we explored the brewery centre as one of the few options available to us.
“Relocating to the brewery centre allows us to keep our around 500 employees who use our head office in the town centre and importantly brings us closer to our Burton brewery. We also believe that investing in this historic site to make it a great head office for our people, keeps its connection to our brewing heritage by making it a part of our future, ensuring it will play a role in our town for generations to come.
“While we’re very pleased to be able to remain in Burton town centre, we absolutely recognise that the closure of the brewery centre is not without challenges. We’re committed to working with Planning Solutions Limited, the National Brewing Heritage Trust and the council to manage the closure of the site as sensitively as possible and finding the right new home for our industry’s important heritage.”
