Case Study: Vincent Timber’s Transition to Electric Forklift Fleet and AI Pedestrian Detection Integration with Briggs Equipment

Power in partnership

Vincent Timber, a reputable family-owned business with a century-long legacy, has recently marked a significant milestone in their operations. Under the leadership of a fourth-generation family member, the company has embraced innovation and sustainability by transitioning its forklift fleet to electric power. This transformation was made possible through a strategic partnership with Briggs Equipment, a leading provider of material handling solutions. Additionally, Vincent Timber integrated FTC Safety Solutions’ AI Pedestrian Detection Camera onto their newly acquired Combilift fleet, enhancing safety measures within the warehouse & manufacturing environment.

Vincent Timber, operating for over a century, has established itself as a leading player in the timber industry. With 40 dedicated staff members, the company has continuously evolved to meet market demands while upholding its commitment to quality and safety.

Recognising the need to modernise their operations and reduce their carbon footprint, Vincent Timber faced the challenge of upgrading their materials handling equipment. Additionally, ensuring the safety of their employees in the bustling warehouse environment was a top priority.

Vincent Timber partnered with Briggs Equipment & Combilift to navigate the complexities of transitioning to an electric forklift fleet. Briggs Equipment, known for its expertise in material handling solutions, supplied Vincent Timber with a tailored fleet of Combilift electric forklifts. These forklifts not only met operational requirements but also aligned with Vincent Timber’s environmental goals, offering reduced emissions, lower operating costs, and a quieter, more efficient workplace.

In parallel, Vincent Timber collaborated with FTC Safety Solutions to seamlessly integrate AI pedestrian detection cameras into the Combilift fleet. These advanced cameras have created a comprehensive solution to enhance safety within the warehouse environment.

To commemorate this transformative achievement, Vincent Timber organised a vibrant celebration for their dedicated staff and valued suppliers. A vegan street food stand was set up, reflecting the company’s commitment to sustainability and ethical choices. This celebration not only marked the successful transition to an eco-friendly forklift fleet but also emphasised Vincent Timber’s dedication to the well-being of their employees and partners.

The combined efforts of transitioning to an electric forklift fleet and the integration of the Pedestrian Detection Cameras from FTC Safety Solutions, and celebrating with a vegan street food stand have created a positive impact for Vincent Timber. The reduction in carbon emissions from the electric fleet has contributed to the company’s sustainability goals.

Vincent Timber’s commitment to innovation, sustainability, and employee well-being is evident in their recent transition to an electric forklift fleet, celebrated with a vegan street food stand for their staff and suppliers. Briggs Equipment played a crucial role as the equipment supplier, contributing to the success of this eco-friendly initiative. Additionally, the integration of FTC Safety Solutions’  Pedestrian Detection Cameras showcases how a century-old family-owned business can adapt to contemporary challenges, ensuring a prosperous and sustainable future for generations to come.
