Briggs Equipment UK are a leading material handling specialists headquartered in Cannock, Staffordshire. When selecting lifting equipment for various applications over recent years, Briggs has chosen fellow West Midlands based crane suppliers Pelloby.
Local crane suppliers
With a varied range of products covering everything from pallet trucks to order pickers, as well as offering services such as forklift hire, Briggs’ lifting requirements are often varied in nature.
They’ve approached Pelloby on a number of occasions to supply A-frame, portal, jib and overhead cranes of differing capacities. One large production room at their Cannock site on Orbital way houses seven different Pelloby jib cranes, each with a smart uniform yellow finish.
Each of these jib cranes is positioned above a separate workstation and supports a safe working load of 500kg. The underbraced design and manually operated slewing mechanism makes them perfect for individual workers to handle various forklift components – positioning the vehicles underneath the crane as and when required.

In addition to these various jib cranes Pelloby has also supplied two five tonne single girder cranes which span the width of the room. Providing a total reach of 36 metres, these overhead beams provide a five metre height of lift and are fitted with floodlights to illuminate the workspace below.
Anti-collision units were incorporated into the design of both overhead cranes to prevent them ever coming into contact with one another. This added safety feature protects against operator error by automatically shutting down both cranes once either of them enters a specified distance from the other.
The Pelloby service department is still regularly utilised by Briggs to get the most out of their onsite lifting equipment. For example, earlier this year one of our experts came to the Cannock site to administer an overhead slinging and safety course.
