Briggs buys Irish Lift Trucks

Briggs Equipment has bought Irish Lift Trucks (ILT) part of the OHM Group in Ireland.

Dublin-based ILT is a long established dealer of the Hyster range of materials handling equipment serving the Republic.

Briggs said that being part of a larger Hyster dealer would allow ILT to grow and expand its offering more quickly than on a standalone basis.

It also highlighted the fact that this move also allows it to maintain a presence in the EU at a time when the subject of European economic co-operation is going through a period of transition.
