 Adrian Curry, Managing Director at Encirc, commented:

 “All of us here at Encirc are delighted to welcome Richard to lead Encirc Beverages. Richard, with his many years of experience, is going to be a real asset in helping to grow the business unit. When we began our unique business model in 2005 to manufacture, fill and distribute glass containers from one site, we knew at that point it was a very bold and ambitious plan. But fast-forward to now and the majority of the world’s leading wine brands are our customers, and our sustainable supply chain is unrivalled globally. I’m very excited to see how we can keep this area moving forward with Richard’s leadership.”
