Mereway Group's new Hysters
Mereway Group has taken delivery of seven Hyster forklifts at its warehouse hub. The new fleet is all on a seven-year contract hire and is a mix of reach, electric counterbalance and 5 T IC units.
Mereway Group is well established as a successful luxury kitchen and bathroom manufacturer with over 30 years' experience and is one of the 50 fastest-growing companies in the Midlands. To help match the pace of its operations, and after the end of a 15-year relationship with its existing supplier, it invited seven materials handling providers to evaluate its evolving requirements.
Briggs Equipment was able to successfully demonstrate its capability to deliver a high-quality fleet of machines, backed up by comprehensive service and infrastructure support. This includes the BE Portal fleet management tool, which will now allow Mereway to have a complete overview and insight into the performance of the fleet.
Briggs Equipment's regional sales executive, Lee Brookes, says: "In addition to the physical assets, a key part of this agreement is the multitude of support tools and infrastructure that we offer. Being able to accurately track costs and efficiencies through our in-house BE Portal fleet management tool will provide Mereway with a whole new perspective on their operations and provide greater clarity in key areas of their business."
Mereway Group buyer Chris Flanagan says: "Briggs could not have been more helpful through the entire process - from helping us specify and customise the forklifts, to the ongoing contract meetings to ensure everything is running as it should."
