Hensley Completes Acquisition of Premier Distributing

Hensley Beverage Co., Phoenix, said it has completed the acquisition of New Mexico-based Premier Distributing Co. This acquisition adds around 7.5 million cases to Hensley's portfolio.

"This is a new day for Hensley Beverage Company as we expand our geographic footprint outside of Arizona," Andy McCain, Hensley president/COO, said. "We have known the Premier organization for many years and are excited that they have entrusted our company to continue their legacy.  We look forward to getting to know the Premier team and integrating them into the new combined organization."

Already the leading distributor of craft, domestic and import beer, spirits, fine wine and non-alcoholic beverages throughout Arizona, Hensley Beverage will now expand its sales and service of Anheuser-Busch InBev beverages throughout the majority of New Mexico. Hensley Beverage will continue to operate all the New Mexico locations as Premier Distributing, while welcoming the addition of 300 new employees in Albuquerque, Las Cruces, Santa Fe, Clovis, Farmington and Gallup.
