Royal Swinkels Family Brewers simplifies company name and becomes Royal Swinkels

Lieshout, february 7 2024 – As of today, Royal Swinkels Family Brewers will simply be known as Royal Swinkels.

These developments mean that the existing name no longer covers all company activities. The name change, along with an update of the corporate identity, is a logical step to further strengthen the national and international position.
