DIAM and G3 partner in US to supply wineries

Oeneo Bouchage, manufacturer of the technical cork closure Diam, has signed a long-term distribution agreement with leading US supply chain company G3 Enterprises

Effective January 2010, G3 Enterprises will be the exclusive distributor of the Diam portfolio of technical closures to key markets throughout North America. As part of the agreement, G3 Enterprises will be printing and finishing DIAM closures in its Modesto plant.

Based in Modesto, California, G3 Enterprises is a single source provider of packaging and supply chain services, encompassing labels, closures, mobile bottling, bottle decorating and logistics. G3 Enterprises employs over 340 people and supplies over 300 wines and spirits customers throughout North America. Its sales force covers the US, Canada and Mexico.

Commenting on the development, Oeneo Bouchage CEO Dominique Tourneix said: “The distribution agreement with G3 is a huge step forward for Diam - we look forward to a long and successful partnership with G3 and are firmly focused on continuing to grow market share and drive the closure industry forward.”

“The addition of the Diam closures to our portfolio of products and services is a testament to G3’s focus on providing our customers with the latest in technological advances in closures. We are very proud to be associated with Oeneo Bouchage and their patented technical closures’, says Robert Lubeck, president and CEO of G3 Enterprises.

The announcement follows recent investment by Diam to increase the profile of the technical closure in the US. The ongoing program is focused on driving the closure debate within the trade and consumer wine media, with key industry influencers and amongst leading retailers.
