The UK’s premier intralogistics show is being held at the NEC arena, Birmingham on the 13-16th September and has two stands showcasing Briggs Equipment engineering and capabilities.
Stand10H50 in Hall 10 will focus on Briggs Equipment's materials handling expertise with Yale and Hyster equipment. With the theme ‘Manufacturing in the UK', Briggs will promote some of the latest product innovations along with equipment that is proudly manufactured in the UK. Meanwhile, in Hall 12 on stand 12S95 Briggs is adopting the theme ‘Supporting UK industry' to highlight its engineering expertise and wider capabilities.
The Yale MX counterbalanceforklift will officially be launched. Briggs describes as ‘designed to deliver hardworking performance in a variety of 2.0-3.0t capacity applications’, it is especially well-suited to secondary distribution, wholesale, retail, light manufacturing and rental. Specified with a Yanmer 2.6L diesel or PSI 2.4L LPG engine, the MX's three model variants are engineered to provide a cost-effective alternative to Yale's heavy duty cycle, feature-rich VX series.
Also on the Briggs materials handling stand will be a reach truck and three-wheel electric forklift from Yale's warehouse equipment range plus a 2.5t Hyster Spacesaver and Hyster diesel forklift with cab. They will be joined by Hyster's Cool Truck,which features unique technology for the waste/recycling sector including a reverse fan to keep the engine clear of debris.

Ian Tongue, National Accounts and Business Development Director of Strategic Sales at Briggs Equipment, said: "At IMHX we will be showing how, by putting customers at the heart of everything we do, we have evolved into a ‘one stop' solutions provider that delivers real innovation and value.”
