Likely brewery merger


Friday, April 8 – 1938
A proposed brewery amalgamation is the subject of negotiation. The companies concerned are Ind. Coope and Allsopp, Limited and Houlding’s Brewery Company, Limited.

Ind. Coope and Allsopp have five breweries working, one being in Liverpool and the others at Burton-on-Trent (two), Romford, and Plymouth.

The authorised capital is £4,500,000 and the issued capital £3,634,663.

The trading profit in 1937 was £914,501.

Houlding’s Brewery was founded about 50 years ago by John Houlding, who became sixth Lord Mayor of Liverpool.

The firm became a private company in 1914, and now has 30 houses and a large brewery in Liverpool.

It is a private company, and its shares are not quoted.
