Briggs Equipment Ltd were recently awarded the truck order for 15 new Hyster counterbalance units for the Guinness canning facility at Runcorn.
Caroline Beardsell, Diageo’s Engineering & Facilities Co-Ordinator was delighted that Briggs Equipment were awarded the new truck deal as she explained, “Briggs’ service support and contract management since 2012 has been extremely pro-active and provided solutions and ideas over this primary contract term which were beneficial to both parties.”
The Hyster trucks had a proven track record over the previous primary contract term and the Diageo operators had a preference to remain with this brand of truck.
Caroline continued to explain, “The overall package from Briggs Equipment was the main factor in making our decision. Hyster trucks with their dependability and a dedicated field service engineer who has demonstrated on many occasions his ability, ideas and solutions to providing a fully operational fleet for Diageo GB. The Hyster Tracker fleet management system has been an innovative addition to the truck specification at Diageo GB Runcorn and this system is used on a daily basis by myself and our Risk Manager Colin Evans.”
