About Us

AmeyBriggs is a joint venture between infrastructure support service provider Amey UK Limited and asset management and engineering services provider Briggs Equipment UK Limited.

AmeyBriggs secured the MITER contract to maintain and manage the Ministry of Defence’s (MOD) fleet of construction and materials handling equipment, and other key plant, until 2027.

MITER is an important MOD contract involving the deployment and maintenance of key equipment used by the UK’s Armed Forces around the world as well as supporting military personnel in how to use it. The seven year contract is valued at £240m and brought together three separate contracts under one 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 consolidated MITER contract. This supports the MOD’s requirement to ensure a sustained and consistent service for the British Armed Forces personnel on deployed operations at home and overseas.

A major benefit of combining these three contracts into a single contract has been to reduce the overall fleet size and associated equipment costs, whilst continuing to allow the fleet to be modernised.

Vehicles in the MITER fleet include excavators, bulldozers, cranes, and forklift trucks and meet Defence’s need for earth-moving, engineer construction and mechanical handling capabilities.

Fleet Management

AmeyBriggs supports our forces with the supply and full management of their mechanical handling, engineering and construction fleet capability.

AmeyBriggs manage the through life support of the fleet, ensuring there exists a permanent supply chain to provide spares, technical documentation, tooling and testing equipment and training whenever and wherever the Customers need.

AmeyBriggs maintain a high fleet availability to ensure the Customer can respond rapidly and effectively, with confidence that AmeyBriggs can deploy the service quickly if needed.


The fleet comprises over 4,000 assets and is a mixture of commercial off the shelf (COTS) and military modified equipment (MOTS), totally balanced to meet MOD capabilities and requirements. The equipment ranges from 50T cranes to 100L concrete mixers, including counterbalance fork trucks and container stackers.

The work horses of the British Armed Forces are the Self-Loading Dump Trucks, Medium Wheeled Tractors, Lighting Towers and Telehandlers. These equipment have been used to great effect, and continue to be, in support of military operations around the globe.

The current fleet, where applicable, will undergo an extensive replacement programme known as the ARP, or a thorough service life extension programme, known as the SLEP.

Some of our best practice services include:

Data Exploitation

AmeyBriggs knows that to provide an excellent service to our existing and future customers, it is imperative to have digital technology embedded in what we do. Utilising the latest technology and partnering it with security best practices ensures that AmeyBriggs and our services are functional, safe and agile to deliver value.

By having the right technology and people, AmeyBriggs can analyse our customers’ data to uncover trends and patterns which can then be used to provide better value and a more efficient service.

Our Vision & Strategy

“Through excellence in delivery of MITER, AmeyBriggs will expand, develop and win future contracts”

Our vision sees the business creating a foundation of excellent performance on its core contract, MITER with the MOD, from which we can expand business activity to further contracts with Defence and other customers in the plant and mechanical handling asset management sector.
