WALVIS BAY

05 November 2018 | Local News

Otis Finck - The construction of a new Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) depot at Walvis Bay is nearing completion.

NBL invested N$27 million into the construction of the facility which is expected to be completed towards the end of this year.

The new facility is of world-class standard with a pleasant and safe working environment.

At the ground breaking ceremony which took place on 3 November 2017, NBL managing director Wessie van der Westhuizen explained that the coastal depot located in Swakopmund would relocate to Walvis Bay.

The brewery at Swakopmund closed its doors and moved all operations to Windhoek In 2003. Since then this building has been operating as a depot for the central coast.

“After deliberations and discussions pertaining to the deteriorating condition of the existing building which posed major health and safety risks for our employees, customers and clients, a decision was reached to identify a new allocation for our coastal depot.”

The Swakopmund depot serves the breweries to export its products to 17 other countries through the Walvis Bay harbour.

The financial results of the NBL for the year ended 30 June 2018 shows the company generated revenue of N$2,6 billion (down by 0.8%) with an operating profit of N$613 million (up by 0.34%) and N$398 million (up by 25%) profit after tax.
