Craig Willoughby, Supply Chain and Operations Director for Snows Timber Ltd explained, “Here at our Mansfield operation we have 13 pieces of equipment that have been supplied by Briggs. That’s a combination of side loaders, Combilifts and front loading forklift trucks of varying capacities, including a JCB telehandler.

“Since we started the installation with Briggs approximately 10 months ago, we have experienced significantly greater truck reliability. Briggs helped us with the transition by taking away our older, less reliable equipment as they delivered the new equipment to site.

“We get much greater truck reliability with the equipment now, and the service provided by Briggs in terms of the efficient turnaround of vehicle breakdown has enabled us to keep our fleet on the road longer, to help us drive greater efficiency within our operations.

“The safety features of the equipment provided to us by Briggs under this arrangement are significantly enhanced from the old equipment we previously had which means we have a better working environment and a safer working environment which is of paramount importance to us here at Snows Timber.”
