We’d like to thank New Belgium supply chain director Nate Turner, writer Sidney Hill and the editors over at Supply Chain Brain for including us in their annual “100 Great Supply Chain Partners” issue. Hill focused on our work with New Belgium Brewing and their evolving sophistication with supply chain practice and tools. Their culture has uniquely enabled them to fuse a passion for brewing with mastery of the business side — a balance that many tried and failed to strike during the first craft beer boom of the ’90s.
Hill spoke with Turner about New Belgium’s unique supply chain challenges and our role in helping to meet them.
“This system has helped us maintain consistently high customer service
levels—while keeping inventories within a level we can live with—even
as our business has become more complex in terms of the number of
products we sell and the number of customers we serve,” Turner
concludes. “We also are pleased with the role Demand Foresight has
played as a business partner. They understand that our business is
constantly evolving, and they continue to personalize the system to
meet our needs.”
It’s an honor to be part of one of Colorado’s — and the country’s — coolest business stories.
