Beam Global Spirits & Wine and Glazer's Distributors have renewed their distribution agreement in two US states.

The companies confirmed today (15 April) that the "long-term" agreement covers Texas and Louisiana in the country.

The agreement also supports the Beam Global 'Beamerica' strategy through a performance-based approach aligning Beam's and Glazer's business priorities, Beam said.

Bill Newlands, president of Beam's US business, said: "This new performance-based agreement helps us win in the marketplace with our 'Beamerica' strategy of doing business 'Smarter. Faster. Better' for our customers.

"Glazer's has been a valued contributor to Beam Global's success for more than 60 years. Our new long-term agreement builds on that success by further aligning our business strategies and priorities."

Glazer's executive vice president and COO, Mike Maxwell, added: "We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Beam Global. For 100 years, we have been focused on building brands, dedicated to our partnerships and continuously striving to provide best-in-class service to our suppliers and customers. This commitment to service will help us build Beam Global's leading brands in both Texas and Louisiana."

Glazer's, which operates in 11 US states, accounts for around 10% of Beam's total US sales.
