AmeyBriggs has secured a new contract to maintain and manage the Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) fleet of construction and materials handling equipment, and other key plant, until 2027.
AmeyBriggs is a new joint venture between infrastructure support service provider Amey plc and Briggs Defence, a specialist division of asset management and engineering services provider Briggs Equipment. AmeyBriggs has announced that it has been chosen as the preferred supplier to deliver MITER.
MITER is a new MoD contract involving deployment and maintenance of key equipment used by the UK’s Armed Forces around the world as well as training military personnel in how to use it. The seven-year contract is valued at £240 million and brings together three separate contracts under a single fleet management and maintenance provision arrangement.
The Defence Mechanical Handling Equipment (DMHE), Protected Engineering Equipment and C-vehicle Capability contracts now form part of the new consolidated MITER contract. This will support the MoD’s requirement to ensure a sustained and consistent service for British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force personnel on deployed operations at home and overseas.
Briggs Defence is a respected MoD partner and has been providing the UK’s Armed Forces with logistics solutions across land, air and sea, including global equipment supply and engineering support, since 1997.
About 180 staff and supply chain partners will be transferred to AmeyBriggs, a separate business, which brings together a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience.
