Forklift distributor wins innovation award

Forklift truck supplier Briggs Equipment has won a prestigious technology and innovation award for its ‘Speedshield’ asset management tool.

The West Midlands based firm received the UK Warehouse Association (UKWA) Award at a gala luncheon held by the UKWA at the London Dorchester Hotel. Speedshield directly impacts bottom-line costs by reporting in real time, on speed, truck efficiency, damage and misuse. The judges recognised its bold and innovative responses to the changing market place.

Briggs Equipment CEO, Richard Close, said: “We are delighted to win the UKWA award for technology and innovation. 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.”
