“One Pint Brands” now in Slovenia
Danish One Pint Brands and Croatian MAS Plenum craft beers distributors buy majority share in Slovenian AMSTAR.
As from November 15, 2018, Danish One Pint Brands and Croatian MAS Plenum has bought the majority share in Slovenian AMSTAR. AMSTAR is an important distributor in Slovenia and has brought in some of the best craft beers to Slovenia, both classic European beers as well as modern style craft. They have grown through the years and today AMSTAR sells 3,160 HL per year. The plan is that AMSTAR will continue to grow and provide even better service and assortment to its customers together with One Pint Brands and MAS Plenum.
AMSTAR’s current owner, Andrej Mrzel, is retaining an advisory role in the company. “This is a great move for Amstar, its employees and customers. Support from strong partners will help Amstar to grow and offer our customers the best possible support and finest craft beer from distinguished brewers,” he says.
This is an important step in One Pint Brands’ strategy to expand: With this step One Pint Brands will have three markets with direct distribution (Denmark, Germany and Slovenia), two markets with partners (Croatia and Portugal) and another four with re-export (Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Greece). In total One Pint Brands will cover nine markets selling a total of 40,000 HL per year.
One Pint Brands has a crucial experience in building up a distribution company in terms of business development, sales, marketing, logistics, beer knowledge etc. “Since One Pint was founded 15 years ago we always had the mission to be the preferred partner for private breweries around the world; we are there for the producers. By entering new markets we can make it easier for craft beer producers to reach out further without having their own people in each country. At the same time we can bring knowledge, service and – very important – fresh beer to the distributors within the One Pint group,” says Henrik Kirkegaard, founder of One Pint, who welcomes this new member of the group.
The new CEO of the company will be Zvonimir Pelko from MAS Plenum, who says: “I’m super excited to build on the success of Amstar with the ambitious and knowledgeable staff they have together with the experiences we have from both Croatia in MAS Plenum and the One Pint Brands group. I look very much forward to this new experience and truly believe that together we can take the Slovenian beer market into a new and higher level. The craft beer scene of Slovenia is quickly growing with curious consumers demanding quality. With this new constellation we are even more ready to serve them.”
From January 1, 2019, the name of the company in Slovenia will be One Pint D.o.o.
