Kingsland's high spirits - Manchester Evening News

Kingsland are one of Irlam's success stories, employing 300 people at the former Co-operative bottling plant. Despite the credit crunch, the company has experienced a £20m rise in turnover over the last 12 months. Their story reveals some classic industrial location theory. Undoubtedly their continuing presence in Irlam is due partly to the Manchester Ship Canal, which Kingsland use to transport wine via barge from Liverpool. Their suppliers have a colonial feel - including Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, America, Chile and Argentina.
