GROWING ever stronger as part of Briggs Equipment, Hitec Lift Trucks in Wellingborough is looking to increase its customer base and its products and services under its new owner.
The Finedon Road Industrial Estate firm was acquired by Briggs earlier this year, but continues to serve its customers across the region under its own name but with the benefits of being part of a large organisation.
Hitec Lift Trucks now represents the Hyster brand of fork-lift trucks, accessing a large range of machines as well as increased opportunities in terms of resources, training and support.
Managing Director of Hitec Lift Trucks, Prospero Girardi, said: "As far as the day-to-day running of the company goes, nothing has changed. Our customers still deal with Hitec and the same personnel they did before. Briggs recognises the importance of local brands and the importance of continuity.
"What our customers will benefit from is the access we have to a wide range of machines, many that we simply weren't able to provide before, because we are part of a big organisation. As a company, we can take advantage of the product training, resources and support that being part of Briggs allows us.
"It was important for Hitec to have more investment in order to grow the company and carry on with our long-term goals."
Hitec Lift Trucks is one of the leading fork-lift trucks and materials handling equipment dealerships in the region. A whole range of machines, including niche access platform and lifting equipment, is available for sale or hire, either on long-term or short-term hire, to fill an urgent need for extra equipment at busy periods or for use in specific situations.
Since it was established in 1986, Hitec Lift Trucks has focused on getting to know customers' needs to help them deliver the service and support that's needed. As well as sales and lease hire, the firm provides servicing, repairs and maintenance.
