Romiley Board Mill increase productivity with new fleet from Briggs


Romiley Board Mill are a leading cardboard packaging supplier & manufacturer, based in Stockport. Previously,their materials handling equipment has been supplied by a number of different companies, with Briggs Equipment being one. However, as part of their ongoing efficiency drive, Romiley wanted to move to a sole MHE supplier.


As sole supplier, Briggs will be able to deliver greater consistency across Romiley’s operations The first phase of new equipment was delivered recently, which includeda fleet of LPG and Electric Yale Forklifts, complete with paper clamp attachments and a comprehensive set of safety features. The trucks will work across a 24 hour shift period, so we needed a robust and reliable product. The BE Portal fleet management platform is also a really useful tool for Romiley as it provides a better insight intothe performance of the equipment and helps identify areas for improvement.


Peter Wilson, Briggs Equipment’s Sales Executive,commented: “We are delighted to be expanding ourongoing partnership with Romiley Board Mill.

“The new trucks tick a number of boxes for the customer. The switch from diesel and LPG machines willhave a really positive impact on their sustainability performance, but it’s also cost-effective in the long-termand will help deliver positive benefits right throughoutthe business.”

Jon Barnes, Safety and Environment Manager, commented: “It’s really important for us to have that sole supplier, especially from a service perspective as it helps promote greater consistency. We have a really good relationship with the Briggs engineers, so from that perspective it was a no-brainer. Importantly, we have also made the switch from diesel to electric and LPG machines, which will help reduce our environmental impact both in terms of air and noise pollution. We’ve also invested in a number of safety attachments for the new trucks, including Halo blue lights, white noise alarms and hydraulic accumulators, which all demonstrate our commitment to the safety of our people.”
