We are delighted to have completed the delivery of two new Carer 8T electric forklifts to VIG Industrial Relocation in Doncaster.

After an extensive site evaluation process from the Briggs team, the new trucks are equipped and prepped specifically to meet the demands and uniqueness of VIG’s site and operation. The project itself was a collaborative effort between a number of teams from across the business, including specialist support from our Solutions Team.

VIG is a specialist in machinery installation and removal services. The high-intensity nature of their application required a tough truck that delivers performance, safety and has sustainability at its heart. The Carer trucks possess an impressive 8 tonne capacity and their electric configuration will help VIG deliver on their sustainability goals.

Jason Lowthorpe, Briggs Equipment’s Senior Sales Executive, commented:

“We are delighted to have completed this delivery of two new Carer electric forklifts to VIG. This is a significant win for our business and we look forward to working with the team at VIG to ensure they can get the most out of their machines.”

“The trucks are packed full of safety and operational features to help boost performance and operator comfort. The load sensing steering system, non-marking tyres and rear view camera are just a couple of examples of these ergonomic features. We’ve even been able to customise the colour of the truck to match the customer’s branding, and the rear chevrons will help increase visibility during operation.”

Liam Caygill, Briggs Equipment’s Regional Sales Executive, commented:

“This has been a fantastic project to work on and there has been true collaboration between various teams within the business.

“The new trucks are already busy making a positive impact on VIG’s operations and will help deliver benefits to all areas of their business.”

Ross Candlish, VIG’s, Operation Supervisor, commented:

“The new Carer forklifts are a great addition to our existing materials handling fleet. We have worked closely with the team at Briggs throughout this process and we are delighted with the final product. The new trucks have fitted seamlessly into our operations and the feedback we’ve received so far from our operators has been excellent.

“It’s great to add electric equipment into our fleet and helps us reduce our environmental impact and will prove cost-effective in the long-run. I’d like to thank Jason, Liam, Andrew and all the team at Briggs for their support and we are looking forward to working closely together moving forward.”
