Briggs acquires access firms
17 May 2022
BRIGGS EQUIPMENT Equipment has completed the acquisition of powered access equipment specialists Access Plus and its sister company, TrainingPlus, a nationwide training and skills provider.
Operating from three sites in Scotland, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Irvine, Access Plus has delivered high quality powered access solutions to customers throughout the UK since 1998. The company manages approximately 700 powered access assets, which will help bolster Briggs Equipment’s comprehensive fleet of access equipment and increase coverage in Scotland.
The acquisition of TrainingPlus brings a fully established and well renowned health & safety training provider within the Briggs Equipment Group. The courses and skills delivered by TrainingPlus cover a wide range of subjects and specialities, which perfectly complement the industrial equipment solutions provided by Briggs.
Pete Jones, Briggs Equipment’s Group Managing Director, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Access Plus and Training Plus into the Briggs Equipment Group.
“In recent years, we have significantly increased our access equipment capability across the UK & Ireland and this latest acquisition will enable us to accelerate our powered access strategy and ultimately deliver a broader proposition to our customers. Through the acquisition of TrainingPlus we have an exciting opportunity to expand our existing training services and deliver targeted support to customers across our product offering.”
