Bradfords Building Supplies required a rethink of their industrial equipment solution as a result of sustainability objectives and a company-wide drive for greater on-site
efficiency. As one of the UK’s largest building suppliers, they wanted to set an example within the industry and invest in electrification.
To help meet these requirements, Briggs proposed a multiphase implementation of electric Hyster forklifts to replace their existing equipment fleet. These new machines are equipped with industry leading safety attachments, including blue halo lighting, cameras and livery.
Briggs also facilitated the installation of charging provisions at each site and the delivery of familiarisation and training support.
This collaborative approach has ensured a smooth transition from diesel to electric in phase one and will continue throughout the delivery stages and beyond. Briggs has facilitated the installation of charging provisions at each site and the delivery of familiarisation and training support.
The environmental benefits of this investment extend beyond the significant reduction in CO2, as the new trucks also reduce noise pollution, especially important for sites in residential areas, and deliver increased control and manoeuvrability for operators.
