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.

Turnover is vanity, profit is sanity but cash is reality

How much do Briggs turnover in the UK would i be wright in saying over £100 million.


If a company is taking that much in Turnover they must be doing something wright

Before the acquisition of Barloworld by Briggs this forum was full of posts by Barlow engineers moaning about their company.

Some things never seem to change !!
