Briggs to reinforce industry presence at Multimodal 2013

Leading materials handling solutions provider, Briggs Equipment, is looking to underline its growing strength within the ports and shipping sector at the upcoming Multimodal 2013 exhibition at Birmingham’s NEC.

This will be the second time that the company has exhibited at the event where it will be presenting its ship to shore to shop floor concept. The move follows the recent expansion of its product portfolio to include the innovative range of Hyster equipment.

Briggs’s Chief Operating Officer, Chris Meinecke, explained: “The ports and shipping sector has been identified as a key area of growth for Briggs and has become a core part of our growth strategy.

“We recognise that the Multimodal exhibition is a key event within the industry and presents a great opportunity to build relationships with new and existing users of Hyster equipment.”

Chris went on to explain how today’s market has moved far beyond simply supplying machines and how it’s now about providing total handling solutions from technological innovation through to the support in after-sales and engineering capability.

The company successfully showcased this approach at the recent International Materials Handling Exhibition (IMHX) and it hopes to do the same at Multimodal.

On stand 324 within the UKWA lounge, visitors will have the chance to speak to key figures within Briggs supported by a range of visual displays.

In its sixth year, Multimodal is the leading freight transport and logistics exhibition for the UK and Ireland and will be taking place at Birmingham NEC between 23-25 April 2013.
