BELGIUM: Heineken's Alken Maes completes Affligem merger
Heineken shuffles its pack in Belgium
Heineken subsidiary Alken Maes has completed the merger by acquisition of Affligem Brewery in Belgium.
The merged entity will trade under the Alken Maes name, a Heineken spokesperson confirmed to just-drinks today (28 May).
"This means that the administration of Affligem moves to Alken Maes," she added.
Belgium-based Alken Maes, which brews the Grimbergen and Maes beer brands, passed to Heineken as part of the S&N deal. Affligem, which was original brewed by monks at Affligem Abbey in Belgium, was already a part of Heineken.
Earlier this year, Alken Maes began a consultation with staff over its plan to cut 49 jobs from a workforce of 550.
