MicroStar Logistics Expands Partnership with Constellation Brands

Greenwood Village, Colorado, UNITED STATES

DENVER, Feb. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MicroStar is proud to announce an expanded partnership agreement with Constellation Brands as its new keg solutions provider. This new partnership will help support Constellation’s growth as the high-end leader and No. 3 beer company in the U.S. with iconic Mexican import brands including Corona Extra, Corona Light, Modelo Especial, Modelo Negra and Pacifico.

“We share Constellation’s commitment to quality, innovation and people as these are the foundations of great companies and enduring partnerships,” said MicroStar’s Chief Operating Officer, Glen Opp. “In addition, when looking to build a second Keg Quality Center modeled after our flagship, industry-leading facility in Green Bay, WI, the opportunity to position it near Constellation’s Nava Brewery in Eagle Pass, Texas, was a true win-win.  This new facility will give Constellation high-quality kegs while also allowing MicroStar to expand on our quality commitment for our growing customer community.”

“We are pleased to expand our keg sourcing and logistics with MicroStar,” said John Kester, Constellation’s Senior Vice President of Operations Services for the Beer Division.  “This partnership will create a streamlined process and increased flexibility to support the trajectory for continued growth of our Mexican beer portfolio.” 

MicroStar has partnered with Constellation Brand’s Craft and Specialty Division since 2015.  By expanding its partnership with MicroStar, Constellation Brands will now receive the full supply assurance, flexibility and sustainability benefits that come from MicroStar’s network of more than four million kegs.
