By The Glass International (BTGI) are delighted to announce the appointment of Tamworth based T & J Installations Ltd (T&J) as their sole UK distributors and maintainers for their internationally renowned and award winning wine preservation and dispensing systems.
BTGI have had a presence in the UK since 2009 since when over 100 systems have been installed in the on-trade and off-trade alike. Prestigious installations at venues such as The Perfectionists Café, Booths Supermarkets, Royal Albert Hall and Hakkasan have made By The Glass a well established and trusted brand.
By appointing T&J Installations Ltd, BTGI has found a partner that will be able to scale up their presence in the UK whilst being able to bring in-house the all important post-sales maintenance and support.
Koen Antonis, partner at BTGI, said:
“We are thrilled to enter the next phase of development of By The Glass in the UK through our partnership with T&J. With the introduction of the Modular 2-bottle system and upcoming new product innovations, the By The Glass customer base will grow further, not only in the big cities but in smaller towns as well. The partnership with T&J enables us to share the By The Glass concept with a much bigger audience whilst guaranteeing that we can provide technical support to any user anywhere in the UK”.
In response Ian Jones, Director at T&J Installations, said:
“The partnership with BTGI just made a lot of sense from when we first started discussing the opportunity. Wine preservation dispensers are a comfortable fit with our existing business activities in beer and drinks dispensing, cellar cooling and refrigeration equipment. The wide range of wine systems we can now offer through BTGI completes the existing portfolio to allow us to become the UK’s foremost dispensing experts for both the off and the on-trade.
We have already pre-informed some of our customers and their reactions have been extremely positive as they understand the opportunities By The Glass dispensers could offer them and know that we can guarantee a flawless implementation, operation and support.”
