The enterprise takes care of its employees, clients and consumers. We pay great attention to production processes modernization as new equipment allows saving time and pains, turning out products according to the modern quality standards. It is impossible to overestimate the role of technological equipment in production because it is its technical perfection that defines technical effectiveness and economical efficiency of any technology. Consequently, technology gap of any brewery predetermines the loss of its positions on the beer market.
