Employee of 31 years unveils plaque to celebrate Magor Brewery’s 35th birthday

AB InBev's 35th brithdayDavid Ball, a brewing technician from the Magor Brewery, had the honour of unveiling a commemorative plaque to celebrate the brewery’s 35th birthday. The brewery – a leading brewer in the world – celebrated their 35th birthday in September 2014.

Magor Brewery is owned by Brazilian/Belgian drinks company, AB InBev, and presently employs 400 people from the Monmouthshire area to brew favourites such as Stella Artois, Beck’s and Budweiser.

Initially taken on by the Brewery at the young age of just 18, David Ball first spent a few years in the lab before graduating to the role of forklift driver.

By the age of 23 David was a brewing technician, a position he has held for 26 years – valuable for keeping the taste of AB InBev’s brands consistent over all these years.

David’s father and uncle worked at the brewery prior to his own employment and he has plans to continue working there until he reaches retirement.

The Magor Brewery is open 24 hours a day and has the capacity to produce 1.8 million cans, 2 million bottles and 13,000 kegs every day. The brewery makes a massive 4.5 million hectolitres of beer every year!

Magor is the largest brewery of AB InBrev in the UK and produces some of the best beers in the world. It makes cans, kegs and bottles throughout six packaging lines and brews almost 792 million pints of beer every year. Not only 400 people are employed by the brewery, but also the brewery supports about 8,400 jobs.

On the occasion of the inauguration of the plaque by Union Representative David Ball on the 35th anniversary of the brewery, local MP Jessica Morden visited the brewery too to mark its brewing milestone.

AB InBev owns three breweries in the UK – Magor, Richmond and Samlesbury – with the company offices in Luton.
