Speaking during the visit, Governor Ugwuanyi said Ama Brewery plays a lead role in the economic and social wellbeing of the state
“Ama Brewery is a symbol of economic, social and infrastructural prosperity of our beloved Enugu State. It is critical to the industrial development of our state because of the countless jobs it provides and supports and the remittances it makes to government. Enugu State is also a beneficiary of your numerous CSR interventions which provide a better life for our people.” He said.

The governor expressed his delight at the prospects of engaging the management of the company to discuss areas of similar interests and to proactively manage concerns to ensure smooth operations for Nigerian Breweries in the state.

in his words, “let me assure you that the government and good people of Enugu State is solidly behind you. We pledge our commitment to the growth of this company which translates to the growth and development of our state and people”

Earlier, the managing director and chief executive of Nigerian Breweries Plc, Mr Nicolaas Vervelde while welcoming the governor congratulated him on the speed of interventions in the state, especially for flagging off the construction of three roads around the brewery area.
Mr Vervelde highlighted the significant contributions of Ama Brewery to Enugu State and informed the governor of the support the company needs for its projects, including the planned expansion of the operational capacity of the brewery.
“To realise the plans we have, we require a conducive environment, community support and surrounding social infrastructure. It is in this respect that I request the partnership of the Enugu State Government and our immediate communities as we go forward”, he said.

He stressed that success for Ama Brewery directly translates to success for Enugu state.

According to him, “our philosophy of Winning with Nigeria mandates that when we succeed, all our stakeholders will also benefit and win”.

Also, the Brewery Manager, Mrs Ethel Emma-Uche made a presentation on the brewery to the governor, showcasing the world class facilities and operations within the brewery.

She led the visitors on a tour of the facilities after which the governor planted a commemorative tree.

The visit also provided an opportunity for the governor to commission an ultra-modern town hall donated by the company to its immediate host community, Umuezeani.
