Coopers Brewery is preparing to unveil a new $60 million malting plant that is considered the most technically advanced of its kind in the world.

Coopers’ Brewery will open the door this month on its largest ever single investment when it completes its new 16,000²m malting plant at Regency Park later this year.

The new facility is the most technically advanced malting plant in the world, and is costing around $60 million, managing director Tim Cooper said.

This makes it the largest ever single investment by Coopers, eclipsing the $40 million cost of the new brewery at Regency Park in 2001.

At a recent product launch, Cooper said construction started at the beginning of last year and would be in the full flow of producing malt shortly.

The new plant marks a return to the maltings business for Coopers which, between 1988 and 2002, was a majority shareholder of Adelaide Maltings until it was sold to AusBulk to help fund Coopers’ move from Leabrook to Regency Park.
