Amber Beverage Group (ABG) has confirmed it will complete the acquisition of a controlling interest in one of the oldest producers of spirits in Russia – Permalko. The company is in the TOP 20 list of vodka and spirits producers in Russia and its acquisition will be a significant milestone in ABG’s efforts to become a truly global company.
Seymour Ferreira, CEO of Amber Beverage Group, confirmed that ABG plans to retain all of the Permalko operational management team and staff. “Our strategy is focused on the large markets that will allow us to continue our growth plans. Currently, we have ten primary markets that we are focusing on. These include USA, Canada, Italy, Spain, Portugal, UK, Australia and, of course – Russia. Having the Permalko team on board will make our position considerably stronger in this growing market,” Ferreira emphasized.
Permalko is a modern company using the latest technologies. Their spirits are exported to the CIS countries, Europe, the USA and Africa, and they have successfully created markets in up-and-coming Russian regions such as Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Vladivostok, Irkutsk and others. Permalko’s extensive portfolio caters to every wish; it consists of over 20 kinds of spirits including vodka, balsam and liqueurs.
