Nine new Mercedes-Benz Actros sparkle for AG Barr

BAG DAI

World famous soft drinks leader AG Barr has made a major investment in “future-proofed” transport technology by commissioning nine new tractor units from Mercedes-Benz Dealer Western Commercial. The Cumbernauld-based company’s latest order reflects its commitment to safety, and desire to minimise maintenance costs, while also ensuring it is well placed given the proposed introduction of low-emission zones in Edinburgh and Glasgow. AG Barr runs 47 trucks, 94% of which are by Mercedes-Benz. The Actros are also equipped with the optional Predictive Powertrain Control system, which employs digital 3D mapping and GPS data to scan the topography of the road ahead, then manages gear changes and ensures that full use is made of the truck’s Eco Roll function. As well as increasing fuel-efficiency and reducing emissions, PPC complements safety by promoting a relaxed driving style.

AG Barr ‘futureproofs’ fleet with nine Mercedes Actros

BAG

Irn-Bru maker AG Barr has added nine new Mercedes-Benz Actros tractors to its 47-strong fleet, describing the vehicles’ build quality and safety features as a “phenomenal all-round package”. Transport manager Gary Campbell (pictured) says: “With low-emission zones on the horizon for Scotland we were keen to futureproof the business by moving to Euro VI engines, and to de-risk our maintenance cost exposure by purchasing new, rather than pre-owned vehicles.”. Supplied by dealer Western Commercial, the new additions are all Actros 2543 models with ClassicSpace cabs and 10.7-litre straight-six engines producing 422bhp. Each is specified with the manufacturer’s Safety Pack: this includes Active Brake Assist 4, with its pedestrian recognition technology, as well as Proximity Control Assist and a driver’s airbag.

A.G. Barr sees higher revenue but flags uncertainty, regulations

BAG DTRUMP

A.G. Barr sees higher revenue but flags uncertainty, regulations. Roger White, chief executive of AG Barr, said that after a strong summer there were seen signs of lower consumer spending that had affected the group's grocery and casual dining customers in the autumn. The company, whose brands include Irn-Bru, Rubicon, Strathmore and Funkin, expects revenue for the year to January 26 to rise 5% year-on-year to £277mln as volumes rose 3%, shrugging off the impact of a sugar tax and a Co2 shortage during the period. "The impact of the Soft Drinks Industry Levy has been evident across the United Kingdom soft drinks market with value growth significantly outstripping volume in the period", the company said. Sophie Lund-Yates, equity analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, said sugar tax-related price hikes mean volume growth has been slow for the soft drinks industry, but that AG Barr bucked the trend.

Irn-Bru sales soar to £277million despite AG Barr's controversial sugar tax recipe change

BAG

THE makers of Irn-Bru and teacakes got sweet news yesterday — as they both reported soaring sales. Tunnock’s flogged nearly 25 per cent more biscuits overseas to boost turnover to over £58million. And AG Barr shrugged off a row over their iconic product’s controversial new recipe to rake in £277million. That was up five per cent on 2017 — despite the new sugar tax plus the big freeze hitting demand for cold drinks. Announcing pre-tax profits in excess of £45million, Barr’s chief executive Roger White said: “It was a volatile year but we got through all of that.”.

Analysis: Warnings catch AG Barr investors off guard

BAG

IT is not unusual to hear a business warn of the effects of government regulation. But AG Barr seems to be spending as much time adapting to red tape these days as it does making the fizzy orange stuff which made it famous. The Scottish firm spent much of the last couple of years preparing itself for the Soft Drinks Industry Levy, or the sugar tax to you and me, to the extent that it took the bold step of changing the secret formula of Irn-Bru. Shares in the company dropped nearly five per cent despite an otherwise encouraging update, with AG Barr declaring that it expects to beat the amount of profits it made in its previous financial year. However, the share price fall was a rare dip in what has otherwise been a story of upward progression over the last year. Judging by analysts’ comments, AG Barr has impressed the market with its performance in tough conditions. But there are challenges to come.
