Construction group boosts forklift fleet

05 June 2018

The Bradfords Group is boosting its fleet with over 170 new MHE units supplied by Briggs Equipment. The new fleet covers 61 sites on which the groups’ businesses; Bradfords Building Supplies, Snows Timber and Crendon Timber Engineering operate and consists of a range of Hyster forklifts, Combilift sideloaders/multi directional forklifts and JCB Teletruks.

The Bradfords Group has gone from strength to strength and has ambitious growth plans for the next five years. This significant investment in the new fleet will support the growth through improved productivity and the tools to manage the whole fleet with a complete transparency that was previously unavailable, in turn driving cost efficiency for the group.

The two companies have similar values and missions, which has made the introduction and development of relationships at every level of the business seamless. Briggs has also been making significant investments in its own resources and systems which will in turn strengthen the support it can provide to customers such as the Bradfords Group.

What reinforces the partnership is Briggs’ capability to provide the full materials handling solution; from unparalleled account management through a dedicated team of experts, to flexible asset financing using the in-house solution BE Finance, the provision of BE Portal as an effective fleet management tool and full engineer backup from a team of over 600 highly skill mobile engineers.
