Keg Logistics acquires Atlas Keg Company

Keg Logistics has acquired Birmingham, Alabama-based Atlas Keg Company, a provider of kegs to the rapidly growing US craft brewing industry.

This combination creates a new leader in the keg management sector, with over 1,000 high-growth brewery and cider customers across the US and UK.
The acquisition deepens Keg Logistics’ domain expertise. With a combined 60 years of management experience in the brewing, distribution and keg management supply chain arena, the company is positioned to provide a one-stop-shop solution for its customers. The acquisition also significantly enhances Keg Logistics’ coverage across the US and its ability to provide keg and brewery equipment financing and logistics solutions to beer, wine and cider producers.
“Keg Logistics and Atlas Keg Company are united in our deep commitment to continuing to deliver a service and programme that has the best interest of a brewer in mind. This is why we both feature a rent-to-own model that is superior to any other outsourced keg option available in the industry,” says Chris Sapyta, Keg Logistics CEO.
“Kegs can last over 30 years – brewers without a pathway to eventually owning their fleet through a financing and logistics solution like ours are pouring valuable money down the drain. We help brewers maintain greater control over their assets, lower costs, improve cash flow and increase operational efficiencies of brewing,” adds Sapyta.
“We are thrilled to join the Keg Logistics family,” says Robert Israel, a part-owner of Atlas, who is joining the management team at Keg Logistics. "We share the same values, and the only change to our customers is that we can now serve them even better, while adding new freight and logistics support."
