Arbroath, Angus

Situated between the ports of Montrose and Dundee, the first malting plant was completed in 1970 to supply the local distilling industry and export customers. The design was a single vessel, Saladin style, capable of drying barley and malting in the same vessel without the need for transfers.   This part of the maltings is currently being redeveloped and replaced with a state of the art malting plant capable of producing up to 57,000 tonnes of distilling malt.  This is due to go on stream in late 2009.

Following the first development in 1970, a second phase was built in 1980 and now comprises of 8 cylindro-conical steep tanks feeding 2 germination / kilning 'Clova' vessels with rotating floors. This system produces 24,000 tonnes of malt per annum. Drying of barley is accommodated in these vessels. Extensive barley storage facilities allow close management of the barley stock before its use for malting.

The site produces malts for the distilling, brewing and export markets, delivered by road, bulk container and cargo boat.

Bairds Central Laboratory and Operations Office are based at the Arbroath site. The Laboratory carries out malt analysis for all sites in the group. Within the Operations Office are the Accounts and MIS departments, and the Commercial team which deals with customer sales, delivery schedules, logistics and customer service activities.
