They'll never get the fork truck side to be a good business ! Unless they sort out the total lack of customer retention and understanding the customers needs. We need the customers a lot more than they need us and it's about time The Planet Zarg realized it !
Hako not exactly a quality product.

Always amazes me. When they buy over everything. They can't even get there forklift side of the business correct. And they take on all this other equipment. Wonder when the Americans will have enough of all the investment without any great returns.

That's another one they've kept quite about. I think it went down hill fast when the new guy took over. Most of the competitors engineers all seem to have their problems but nothing like the Briggs guys, and in all fairness Briggs will take on anything, irrespective of experience or training. Its just one big accident waiting to happen. When are the upper management going to wake up and smell the coffee ! Passionate people my *** !

Yet another Briggs closure (Aberdeen due to close this month)

And milo they have everything in place to be great, however buying there way to the top has not worked out well. Common phrase from the ex Barlow guys working there is. "It's like a corner shop trying to run a supermarket" never a truer word said. I actually couldn't believe how many management and office staff they actually have it's mind boggling especially when the onus is on the engineer for pretty much everything. Hands down one of the worst out there for customer service.

So from reading this no one seems to think Briggs are a good Company to work for or Deal with?

Thats were Briggs will make their money on service, silly really the customers is always right and if wants his own service guys to look after his trucks then he should be able to because he is paying for that privlage

Forkingabout we have well over 2000 jungheinrichs in out uk fleet and at least that number again from 2 other manufacturers all owned by us. The rule is if they want to sell to us we expect the same package for our own engineers that Jungheinrich etc engineers get so yes we have The same laptop the Jungheinrich engineers have with Judit, steds for our still trucks and BT/Toyota tablets etc. I spoke to somebody I know at nacco and was told they would release the software to us it was an issue with Briggs who saw pound notes when they realised how big out fleet was and all the salesman could go on about was setting up a full maintenance contract for them to maintain them.

Yes I remember, I saw an evolution around 2008 - 2009 where I could offer it but only to some very massive end users who were mainly manager by Key Accounts dept. And even for these customers it was a long process to have hierarchy approval
