Oh great, 20 years service and I hear about this on social media ! Shouldn't be surprised really the way that they've been performing over the last few years.
I bet they'll still have as many directors and senior managers though.

Hi, that was the voluntary early retirement scheme that was sent out to eligible employees last week. It's not linked to roles.

At least 10% going I believe, there are too many people doing not a lot anyway so we won't notice.
Let's hope this time around the right people leave unlike last time.

Just heard Briggs want to reduce staffing levels by 30%, offering £10k inducement for people to leave, unless they are critical staff, anyone heard the same??

Could anyone tell me more on Briggs Defense? They seem to be advertising for an engineer to solely work ok their defence equipment? Is this correct or is it shared amongst all road engineers?

Also do they have any decent resident sites?

Possibly just a friendly takeover to help out an old mate and former employee.

Different ball game to lift trucks completely, few synergies, different customers, customer requirements and business model. Briggs could learn a lot if they don't interfere, clone it and cause mayhem.........the take over seems low key , as you say just in the small print and the bottom of the home page...at the moment

Who's that they bought? Interesting to see them purchase Hiremech recently, that will be a fair dig in the chops for Impact.

Well it has taken a bit of time (June 2017) but, here we are with the announcement this week from Big Pete: Briggs buyout heavy plant company. What could possibly go wrong?

Irish lifts trucks was an old company that never changed. forklifts was only a small part of a bigger company before Briggs took it over. Different market in Ireland compared to the UK where nearly all of there business is contract hire.
