One of Scotland's largest independent drink suppliers, Inverarity Morton is to close its depot in Symington, South Lanarkshire with the loss of three jobs as part of a £400,000 restructuring programme.

The firm – formed six months ago from the merger of drink distributors Inverarity Vaults and Wm Morton – said the closure was a cost saving measure.

Stephen Russell, md of Inverarity Morton, said all the firm’s operations will be run form its offices in Shawbridge, Glasgow after the closure of the former Inverarity Vaults headquarters in Symington.

£400,000 upgrade

Meanwhile, Russell said that £400,000 will be invested in upgrading all back office, stock management and delivery software systems as well as adding new vehicles to the firm’s fleet.

Inverarity Morton supplies the hospitality trade throughout Scotland. Its 2,000 clients include all Scottish Michelin-starred restaurants.

Wm Morton recorded a turnover of £46M in 2010, up 10% on the previous year.

Inverarity Vaults posted turnover of £8.2M, up 11% on 2009.
