Briggs Equipment UK has announced a strategic partnership between the company and Yale dealer Forkway Group.

Forkliftaction.com News contacted Briggs for details of the partnership but did not receive a response by press time. The company said in a statement that Briggs and Forkway have developed a "close working relationship in the UK", enjoying strong customer bases with complementary demographic and geographic strengths.

Briggs UK CEO Richard Close said the partnership would help the company "move to the next level" by offering better service at local levels in key markets and nationally through a broad supply network.

Briggs UK announced last month that it was in the process of buying NACCO Material Handling Group's Yale UK business. Amersham-based Forkway Group, established in 1961, has represented the Yale brand for two years (Forkliftaction.com News #469).
