The end of an era…

Friday 25th February marked a significant point in the history of Forkway. For over 30 years, Richard Greaves & Martyn Fletcher have owned and run the Forkway business across three locations in the UK.

Forkway was acquired by Briggs Equipment UK on 30th November 2021 following a successful 10-year dealer partner relationship. Martyn & Richard stayed on with Forkway until the end of February to assist Paul Fox (the new Forkway Managing Director) with the transition across to Briggs ownership.

Paul and Briggs would like to jointly thank Richard & Martyn for their assistance in this process and wish them a long and happy retirement.

Staff gathered to share an emotional goodbye for Richard, who has been personally responsible for guiding many staff in their careers over a 30 year period, so naturally, those staff wanted to give him a worthy send off. Many a tear was shed, mostly by Richard, he left with a heavy heart but with many fond memories.

Rather than say goodbye, we prefer to say Au Revoir ‘goodbye for now’.
