B&B help Camerons Brewery gear up for major expansion

Camerons Brewery Limited is a large scale ale and lager production facility, and has been based in Hartlepool in the North East of England since 1865. The company produces over half a million barrels of beer on site per annum, equating to over 180 million pints per year.

The facility has recently undergone a major expansion programme, increasing the capacity at the site along with modernising the equipment and machinery, giving the company the capability to support major contract requirements.

The brewery is currently the 11th largest brewery in the UK, producing over 500,000 pints of beer or lager every day. To support this growth and as an integral part of the expansion operation,  B&B Attachments, the UK’s leading supplier of forklift attachments and the exclusive UK distributor of Kaup equipment, has supplied the North East brewer with 5 innovative Kaup keg clamps.

The KegMaster Keg clamp enables a secure grip of kegs and casks, and allows for easy pallet handling without the removal of the centre tine, thereby providing the driver with excellent visibility when approaching the load, whilst increasing driver confidence and ensuring the safe and secure handling of kegs and casks. The ultimate solution for improving product handling, the state of the art keg handling attachment decreases the risk of damage to lorries, and other overhead obstructions, reduces maintenance costs and ensures less shock loading to trucks. 

The standard features of these industry-leading and site-proven attachments include low profile stabiliser with long lasting rubber pads, wear indicators on tines, end stoke cushioning on sideshift movement and special rubber inserts to prevent kegs slipping even in mixed keg loads.

Richard Forster, Logistics Manager at Camerons Brewery, comments “We are delighted with the attachments and the service provided by B&B Attachments over the past 5 years of working together. The Kaup Keg Clamps provided by B&B are an integral part of our operation, enabling fast and reliable loading, unloading and end of line support. They have been chosen to handle an annual volume production of over half a million barrels of beer on site and for their excellent visibility, fast reliable operation and durable construction”.
