Carlsberg-Tetley and Scottish Courage announced discussions to launch a joint venture for a technical services company. The company, called Serviced Dispense Equipment Ltd, will provide the equipment and support to dispense draught beer from cellar to glass. SDEL would be jointly owned by the breweries, and private companies run by industry investors Mike Foster and Nick Bryan. In addition, a new service company, called Innserve Ltd, wholly owned by Foster and Bryan, would be formed to manage the servicing and installation of technical services equipment on behalf of SDEL.
