18 months on from taking delivery of three Hyster J-series counterbalanced electric forklift trucks, Brock Metals feeds back on their experience with Briggs.

“We have now been using the forklifts supplied by Briggs for 18 months and are extremely happy with their performance and of the service received from Briggs as a whole. BE Portal is particularly useful and works very well. It is our feeling that Briggs have exceeded our expectations… thank you.” – Neil Yates, Operations Manager.

The Brock Metal Company is the UK’s largest specialist manufacturer of zinc alloys and choose Briggs to help them improve their environmental impact and operational costs by switching its materials handling fleet from diesel to electric.

Not only did the site benefit from newer and more efficient machines, but due to the performance capabilities of the new machines they were able to reduce the size of the fleet without compromising their handling capabilities. The company operates 24 hours a day, 5 days a week, supplying in excess of 35,000 tonnes of primary zinc alloys for die casting and galvanising and zinc and copper for electroplating to 25 countries across Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

The tough and reliable Hyster J-series of four wheel counterbalanced electric forklift trucks delivers superior maneuverability with zero turning radius, while customisable performance settings enable end users to achieve a balance between energy efficiency and performance.
