Schweppes moves to Quinta da Fonte
Over 230 years of quality, expertise and unsurpassed excellence, now at Quinta da Fonte.
Schweppes Suntory has chosen Quinta da Fonte to establish their headquarters in Portugal. They will occupy part of building Q56 – Dom Pedro I, joining companies like Cofidis, Step-Ahead and Takeda. The building has been totally refurbished and is expected to be fully occupied by end of 2019. Quinta da Fonte is the country’s 2nd largest business park with over 80,000 sqm of space. It fronts the A5 highway, and is strategically positioned between Lisbon and Cascais, at the heart of the capital’s white-collar residential neighbourhoods.
Schweppes Tonic Water began in 1783, in Geneva, as the world’s original soft drink. Its founder, Jacob Schweppe, a Swiss-born watchmaker, amateur scientist and ruthless dreamer, developed a process to manufacture carbonated mineral water based on the discoveries of Joseph Priestley.
In 2009 Suntory Beverage and Food Limited, acquired ownership of Orangina Schweppes Group, including the Schweppes brand in the following countries: Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy , Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, San Marino, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. From the reinvention of the Hamilton bottle, to the creation of innovative new beverages, Schweppes continues to provide quality sparkling beverages, masterfully crafted with time honoured processes and real ingredients sourced from across the globe.
Acacia Point Capital Advisors already manages the majority of the buildings at Quinta da Fonte and, together with the pan-European property fund of Signal Capital Partners LLP, keeps negotiating the acquisition of new buildings in 2020. They are already investing on extensive value-creation initiatives including the provision of additional car parking facilities, improvements to internal traffic flows, the enhancement of amenities including food, beverage and leisure facilities and the refurbishment of buildings, gardens and common areas.Back to news
