One of the UK’s largest distributors and suppliers of folk lift trucks, Briggs Equipment, has recently won a prestigious technology and innovation award for its highly acclaimed ‘Speedshield’ asset management tool. The West Midlands based company beat off stiff competition to win the much coveted UK Warehouse Association (UKWA) Award.
In drawing up the shortlist of nominations, the UKWA judges looked for evidence of bold and innovative responses to the changing market place. The judges also looked for products that would have an effect on increasing efficiency in warehousing operations.
Speedshield promotes optimum safety and efficiency and gives customers complete control over its fleet. New to the UK and exclusive to Briggs Equipment, Speedshield directly impacts bottom-line costs by reporting in real time, on speed, truck efficiency, damage and misuse.
"We are delighted to win the UKWA award for technology and innovation," said Richard Close, CEO of Briggs Equipment. "We have a unique product in Speedshield which provides unrivalled cost savings and efficiency benefits for all lift truck fleet users. The development of Speedshield is ongoing, but winning this award, in the face of some very formidable competition is recognition for all the hard work which has been put in so far."
The award was recently presented to Briggs Equipment at a gala luncheon held by the UKWA at London’s Dorchester Hotel by BAFTA award winning comic Jim Tavaré.
