Company Expects Gross Profit Margin Increase of 50%
Watertown, NY, Feb. 09, 2022 — McapMediaWire — 1812 Brewing Company, Inc. (OTC Pink: KEGS) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has successfully commissioned its recently-acquired MAKRO Three Station Bottle Labeler, its GAI 3031 FM Bier Monobloc Gravity and Pressure Bottle Filler, and its GAI 4290R Crown Cap Elevator.
Since inception, in order to meet market demand for its products, the Company has relied on third parties to “contract” brew, keg and bottle its beer. “While the Company has always valued and appreciated its contract brewing partnerships, it has come at a price. Not only was this more costly for the company,” stated Tom Scozzafava, Chairman and CEO of 1812 Brewing, “it rendered us completely dependent upon the availability of the down times at our brewing partners’ facilities, which many times left the Company at the back of the line as far as importance and priority during the busiest times of the year. Furthermore, our entire bottling business was vulnerable to the health and long-term viability of our contract partners. And over the last 13 years we have had numerous contract partners stop contract production or even go out of business, which has severely negatively impacted our ability to meet demand for the Company’s products.”
With complete production independence, the Company expects gross profit margin expansion of approximately 50% from the most previous contract partner. Additionally, 1812 Brewing has complete scheduling flexibility and can time the production of its products to better meet demand. Finally, having the ability to produce both smaller and larger batch sizes will better-serve the company as it relates to new product development and new product introduction. Mr. Scozzafava added, “When you had to produce a minimum of 500 kegs of beer for kegging and/or bottles, new product development was fraught with financial risk. Now, we can test and market smaller batches, which will allow us to introduce far more brands in very short order.”
In 2020, the Company acquired the MAKRO and GAI bottling equipment after its then-contract partner, Empire Brewing Company, declared bankruptcy. Mr. Scozzafava added, “We knew this equipment functioned well, because it was used to bottle our beer even before we acquired it.” With the assistance of Prospero Equipment Corporation, GAI’s North American sales and service representatives, 1812 Brewing has successfully commissioned the highly sophisticated and powerful equipment, which marks a significant milestone in the Company’s history.
