A TADCASTER firm which provides drinks dispense services is celebrating ten years as an independent business.

Innserve has grown over the last decade to employ more than 550 people across the country, and now has a client portfolio including national and international brands such as Heineken, Carlsberg, C&C and Britvic.

Since launching in 2004, Innserve technicians have completed more than three million visits to licensed and non-licensed premises, while the company’s customer service centre currently receives more than 700,000 calls a year.

Tom Bryan, director of strategy at Innserve, said: "Since being established in 2004, Innserve has continued to develop its services and knowledge base to now provide a comprehensive drinks dispense suite of packaged or individual services, delivering real value to its customers.

"We are proud to be celebrating our 10th anniversary as the largest independent drinks dispense service provider in the UK and look forward to helping existing and future customers exceed their objectives in the coming years."

Innserve also provides event and venue drinks dispense services, and set up the bar services at the recently opened First Direct Arena in Leeds as well as providing technician support for bars at music festivals throughout the UK, including the Isle of Wight Festival and Edinburgh Festival.

Mr Bryan added: "I would like to take the opportunity to thank all our employees for their hard work and dedication. It is thanks to them that we have reached this memorable milestone."
