3rd JUNE 2021

Lion has appointed global asset specialists Hilco Global APAC, in a joint venture with FA Maker to manage the sale of major assets from the West End Brewery. The appointment follows the announcement, in late 2020, of Lion’s plan to close the site at the end of June 2021.

Major assets that are in existing use are now available for immediate sale, with offers being accepted globally. Strong interest is expected from within the brewing community in addition to the broader food and beverage sector on this sale.

“With a fully functioning 500- hectolitre commercial brewery including keg, can, bottle filling and packing lines, we are confident in our team partnering with FA Maker on this project. We expect significant interest in the major assets at this site, and as a local team it’s an honour to be trusted to find the right buyers for the major assets that are in existing use and give these assets new homes” said Adrian Paley, Head of Commercial & Industrial at Hilco Global APAC.
