Our Background and Ambition
Our drinks on every table. That's the Refresco vision. We're thirsty for more and growing fast which is why we recently invested £1.25 billion in expanding our global manufacturing footprint making us the largest independent bottler of soft drinks and fruit juices in the world….
We’re now the proud owners of six drinks manufacturing sites within the UK and we’re looking for experienced electrical, mechanical or multi-skilled continental shift based engineers to come join our Refresco site in Nelson, Lancashire, literally just off the M65 so the site couldn’t be easier to commute to!
Our engineering team is led by Scott, our Site Engineering Manager, and he is excited about bringing new talent into his team to support the delivery of the engineering strategy at site. His drive and commitment to our current engineers, our apprenticeship programme and the site as a whole means that our engineering team at Nelson are well led, feel valued and have an exciting future ahead of them as the site continues to grow and develop
