Briggs Equipment is reinforcing its position as a major provider of materials handling and access equipment hire solutions to the events management sector by joining the highly respected Event Supplier & Services Association (ESSA).
The not-for-profit trade association represents the interests of contractors and suppliers of goods and services to the events/exhibitions industry. Since Briggs offers a fast response, competitive rates and guaranteed service levels, the company had no difficulty in satisfying ESSA's stringent membership criteria.
Allan Parsons, National Rental Manager at Briggs Equipment, says: "The ESSA logo is recognised as a kite-mark for quality and reliability and inspires confidence in buyers across a wide range of disciplines who work in partnership with the organisation's member companies.
"By providing a complete, cost-effective solution we aim to help events businesses maintain productivity so that they not only deliver consistently high standards, but also feel confident about incorporating new, innovative ideas into their events and exhibitions."
Significant investment by Briggs Equipment in its fleet of quality rental equipment has helped the company to grow its business in the events arena. In excess of 5,000 machines are available to hire on flexible contracts ranging from a single day to 12 months, including materials handling equipment, access equipment, sweepers, rough terrain vehicles and telehandlers.
Briggs also helps events businesses to acquire new or high quality used machines to meet their specific requirements and offers unrivalled service support across a wide range of equipment from a national network of 600 highly trained mobile engineers.
The ability to offer a diverse range of equipment backed by quality engineering services support, flexible contracts and a fast response has seen Briggs evolve into a ‘one stop' solutions provider that supports main contractors, stand designers/builders, event management businesses and logistics companies.
By joining ESSA and signing up to its quality service charter, Briggs Equipment is demonstrating its commitment to comply with the events industry's code of conduct. Meanwhile, customers are reassured that it has the resources and knowhow to meet required service levels along with a proven track record in the sector.
ESSA is run by its members whose key values are commitment, innovation, integrity and teamwork. It shares a secretariat with sister organisations the Association of Event Organisers and the Association of Event Venues which helps to promote a closer relationship and greater understanding throughout the wider events management industry.
