|Diageo St. Croix Captain Morgan Distillery|
Diageo USVI that they would be moving its U.S. Captain Morgan rum aging warehousing to Relay, Maryland, in its continuous efforts to improve efficiency. According to a statement by Diageo, the move enables more efficiency in its supply chain and also saves the firm money by improving logistics costs. The transition will begin in the coming months and expected to be completed before the end of 2017.
Crucially, Diageo says the change of location for aging warehousing would not come at the cost of approximately 10 jobs at the distillery. During the transition, those who choose to continue working with Diageo will be offered other opportunities at the distillery. "Everyone currently working in maturation and warehousing who wants to continue working at Diageo USVI will have an opportunity to apply for other roles within Diageo USVI”.
