CHARLOTTETOWN, PE & ABBOTSFORD, BC – The Brewers Journal reports that two of Canada’s top manufacturers of equipment for craft breweries have announced a merger.
According to the report, DME Brewing Solutions of Charlottetown, PEI and Newlands Systems (NSI) of Abbotsford, BC have joined forces effective immediately, with DME president and CEO Peter Toombs (right in photo) taking on the CEO role, while NSI president Brad McQuhae (left in photo) has been named senior vice president of innovation.
“This amalgamation is a defining step in history for DME and NSI,” says Toombs. “Both companies have been manufacturing world class microbrewing equipment solutions for over 25 years and are highly respected within the craft beer industry. We now have the opportunity to expand upon what both companies have built and become even stronger in the future.”
In addition to continuing operations at its existing facilities in Charlottetown and Abbotsford, the newly combined company is planning to open a 50,000 square foot manufacturing facility in South Carolina.
