Briggs' latest acquisition - the company, not the van!

Briggs Equipment has completed the acquisition of UK materials handling specialists Neckar Forklifts and Maxim GB Ltd. 

From their sites in Windsor and Castleford, these businesses have more than 50 years of industry experience and offer a full range of forklift sales, hire solutions, driver training, service support, fleet management and warehouse planning. 

The acquisition provides Briggs Equipment with increased coverage across key areas of England and   further strengthens its position as the UK and Ireland’s premier asset management and engineering services specialist. 

Pete Jones, Briggs Equipment’s group managing director, says the acquisition is another significant milestone and a positive start to 2023. 

“Neckar and Maxim have a proven track record of long-term success and operates within areas of the UK that are strategically very important to us. Their loyal and diverse customer portfolio demonstrates the capability of the business and we are determined to deliver the appropriate investment support and guidance to help Neckar and Maxim reach their full potential.”

Ian Capes of both Neckar Forklifts and Maxim GB says he looks forward to working closely with new colleagues and reaching new heights in the next chapter for his business.

“We have undergone an intensive period of due diligence to ensure that our unique culture and ambition would be preserved. With Briggs Equipment we have a parent company that is committed to the long-term success of every business within its group, and I’m proud to say that Neckar Forklifts and Maxim are now part of the Briggs family.”
