Briggs welcomes the IChemE to our Global Technical Centre

This week at our Global Technical Centre, we hosted members from the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) Midlands Member Group (MMG). It was a fantastic opportunity to showcase #LifeAtBriggs.

Our Sales, Engineering, and Manufacturing teams came together to share how they developed a career in Process Engineering delivering a range of projects globally. The members were impressed with the impact we make in producing everything from Whisky to life saving inhalers.

An integral part of the event was the opportunity to hear first-hand from our engineers about their career development journey. These sessions provided invaluable insights into various career paths within the process engineering industry and the unique experiences that have shaped our team members’ professional growth. The MMG also had the opportunity to visit our production areas including our brand-new Pharmaceutical Systems Assembly (PSA) facility.

Community Sponsorship Days

In addition to these festive season donations, we continued to support and encourage our team members to take community sponsorship days, a Briggs initiative which allows our colleagues to use up to three days a year to help the community.

We’re excited to share Yuri and Ed’s stories:

Edward Gould, Global Technical Centre, Burton-Upon-Trent

Edward Gould opted to use his community sponsorship days for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal in order to help facilitate collection box distribution across the area. He is a member of the British Legion and provides support to drop off and collect the poppy appeal boxes to enable collection of any donations.

I am one of hundreds of volunteer Poppy Appeal Organisers around the country organising the Poppy Appeal on the ground. All to continue to raise vital funds for the work of the Royal British Legion in providing a lifeline for serving and ex-serving personnel and their families. -Edward


We’re happy to share that Yuri’s community sponsorship day was a success.

The people and the children there were so happy for the donation! -Yuri

Yuri Belen applied to the community sponsorship for support of a local not for profit organisation that helps to support families in times of need. The program allowed for $500 USD to be donated in September in order to purchase food for their food bank. Find out more about what Nariz Roja do here.
