The company has created a further 10,000 square feet of storage and distribution space beside its base in Truro. This has given the brewer 50% more capacity and removed the need to operate from satellite locations at Chacewater and Devoran.
Chief executive Steve Skinner said: “It will be particularly useful in helping us handle our increased bottle sales, which have been boosted by the big success of our national sales through Waitrose.”
Skinners’ ales, including Betty Stogs, Cornish Knocker and Heligan, first appeared in Waitrose in 2009 and their early success earned the company listings in all 260 branches.
Skinner said turnover at the brewery is expected to have risen 12% in 2010, and that more staff recruitment was likely later this year.
