Coopers Sparkling Future

Coopers Plans $6 million Equipment Update

The current economic slowdown is not limiting plans by Coopers Brewery to install new
production equipment at its Regency Park brewery.
Coopers’ Managing Director, Dr Tim Cooper, said that in the next 12 months, the brewery would
be installing a new multi-pack packaging machine, rebuilding the pasteuriser, adding a new filter
to the brewery’s lager line and purchasing more kegs.
This follows the expenditure in late 2008 on a new palletiser, including two new industrial robots,
and on a new can filler, as well as investing in the introduction of a new bottle.
Dr Cooper said the new equipment and kegs in 2009 would cost around $6 million and will
provide the brewery with additional capability in producing different styles of beer and packaging
options.
“The new multi-pack packer will allow us to produce new carton sizes, ranging from 12 to 24
bottles, for special promotions or in order to produce packs that meet certain price points,” he
said.
