The Best Villa Soft Drinks
Villa today operates from two sites in the UK. Manufacturing is based at a 60,000 square foot site in Southwick, Sunderland, UK, with the Head Office and Distribution Centre located at a 100,000 square foot premises in Washington, Tyne and Wear, the UK, which became operational in 1997.
Since 1997, Villa has invested over £4 million in expansion plans which have enabled the company to increase and modify production capacity to match customers’ needs and become a major producer of soft drinks and spring waters, supplying over 60 million bottles of product per annum mixed between established brands and customers own label products.
With the addition of a third production line in 2006, Villa has the potential to increase this to over 100 million bottles per year if required and if continental shift working over weekends was introduced, then this would be even greater.
