Briggs’s relationship with Supply Technologies began in 2016 with contracts to service their equipment from existing suppliers. Fast forward to 2019 and Briggs have just helped the fastenings supplier for Hyster-Yale Group to prepare their brand new warehouse facility for operation.
The support from Briggs included planning and supply of high level racking to 12 meters, a Hyster counterbalance truck and two Hyster VNA machines with mast stabilising technology designed for demanding high-density operations.
Russell Salsbury, Senior Operations Manager for Supply Technologies, said, “The VNA trucks are great and the masts really are very stable so we get minimal movement within the aisles. I was also really impressed with how quickly the racking was installed, it took just two weeks from start to finish.”
The new warehouse will be fully operational by late August.
Here is a short demonstration of the VNA in action from one of the operatives currently on site.
