Established in 1978 by visionary entrepreneur John Halewood. In just 30 years Halewood international has gone from a Yorkshire based start up company to the U.K largest independent drinks manufacturer and distributer with more than 1,500 employees worldwide. There product range includes some of the U.K favourite drinks such as Lambrini, Tsingtao Chinese beer, Lamb’s navy rum, Crabbies’s alcoholic ginger beer and Red Square Vodka.
There success in t U.K is only half the story, from their head quarters in Merseyside, the company controls operations from Romania to South Africa as well as manufacturing their own brands and products.
Their success in South Africa has come mainly from the acquisition of the Oasis Breweries in 1999. Since the initial investment the company has continued to develop it with a new bottling facility and this has allowed them to be a major player in the South African Spirit cooler market.
