Keighley based company ABV Licensed Trade Wholesale, who supply within a 30 mile radius, may be known to Echo readers for its sponsorship of the Brighouse and District Snooker League and the town’s games league. However you may have also seen its vans in the area delivering to the many pubs, working men’s clubs and sporting facilities.

The company was formed in 1999 by Stephen Buckley and Dave Ambler.

The sales manager for the Echo readership area and beyond is Rick Buxton.

“We supply lager, ale, cider, spirits and soft drinks and we are partners with Heineken and Carlsberg UK. We also use Oakham Ales in Peterborough and have a popular German import called Krombacher,” Rick said.

The company delivers seven days a week with a fleet of vehicles so no-one will be without drinks.

“We have an excellent range of cask ales and we are a reliable family company giving a personal service,” Rick said.

The website is www.abv.com.

“We supply many clubs, pubs and sporting clubs in the Rastrick, Brighouse and Elland area etc but it is a very competitive market so I won’t divulge our client list but people will have seen us delivering at their chosen watering hole,” he added.

It also sponsors the Bradford and District Golf Union.
