Malcolm Logistics gets a clean sweep with supplied fleet

Originating as a family-owned business in the 1920s, the Malcolm Group has become one of the leading providers of logistics, construction and maintenance services in the UK.

Since appointing Briggs Equipment UK as its preferred supplier of materials handling equipment as part of an extensive materials handling capability review, Briggs has supplied over 137 pieces of new equipment across a range of sites including a number of sites that are managed on behalf of customers.

Briggs has already supplied the company with 111 Hyster forklift trucks plus an additional 26 machines, which are a mix of Aisle-Master articulated trucks, ride-on powered pallet trucks, sweepers, and scrubber dryers.

Specially ‘wrapped’ in their own unique corporate identity, the forklift trucks were specified with the Hyster Tracker wireless asset management system, which is designed to reduce operational costs and CO2 emissions by improving operator performance and overall fleet efficiency.

Following a site survey carried out by Briggs’ and Hako, an additional seven pieces of equipment have recently been delivered to the Leven site, including two Hyster H2.0FTS and five Hako cleaning machines for indoor use in the despatch, materials store and bottling halls. The new cleaning fleet included two compact ride-on Sweepmaster 900Rs, a Sweepmaster 1500 RH (a large powerful vacuum sweeper), a ride-on Scrubmaster B120R (a scrubber dryer with the ability to access areas previously only reached by pedestrian equipment), and a Scrubmaster B45 (a smaller pedestrian scrubber dryer).

Briggs Equipment UK works with many customers, helping businesses of all sizes in a range of industries to meet their business objectives.
