Brau Union AG acquires interest in traditional company Ammersin

Provided the Federal Competition Authority gives its approval, the Brau Union AG holding company will purchase a majority interest (70%) in Rudolf Ammersin GesmbH.

Linz (OTS) - The family business with its about 100 employees, and whose sixth generation of managers is waiting in the wings, is particularly well known as a wholesaler of beverage brands and speciality beers. 

Rudolf Ammersin GesmbH will continue to operate separately from Brau Union Österreich as an independent drinks wholesaler on the Austrian market, and will continue to be managed by the existing Ammersin leadership team. One extra member will be appointed to the board alongside existing members.  

The investment in Rudolf Ammersin GesmbH will not mean any changes for the business policies of Brau Union Österreich and Rudolf Ammersin GesmbH. Brau Union Österreich will continue to work in close partnership with all drinks retailers in the market.
