Molson dropping Miller brand name, bringing jobs to Milwaukee

MADISON, Wis. - The parent company of MillerCoors has announced a major revitalization plan Wednesday morning.

The company plans to drop "Miller" from its brand name along with the word brewing, as it looks to expand beyond beer. It will be now known as Molson Coors Beverage Company, with the official name change going into effect Jan. 1, 2020...

...The company will close its Denver office and make Chicago its North American commercial headquarters. It will move all functional support roles to Milwaukee, according to the Milwaukee Business Journal....

...Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, released the following statement on the changes:

"I would like to thank MillerCoors for expanding its workforce in Wisconsin and its continued commitment to the state. Governor Evers also should be commended for following through on income tax credits that Governor Walker and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation authorized or the company in 2017. It`s good to see the governor is beginning to understand the importance of providing incentives to help spur business and job growth," Rep. Vos said in a statement...

Ken Notes: I also applaud the move. I do question whether this is the correct platform to take a poke at the new Governor. Didn`t we loose the corporate HQ to Chicago not too long ago under a different administration.
