50 Years of Briants
50 years in the making
Since 1964, Briants of Risborough Ltd has been open and trading here at our Green Close Works site in the village of Longwick, Buckinghamshire. We started out in timber haulage and the sale of forestry equipment. As we grew in the 1970's, we identified the need to provide service and repair facilities for the chainsaws and other equipment, to support our customers as they maintain their own businesses. We developed our capabilities further to provide garden machinery and fencing supplies for sale. From 1985 we started manufacturing top quality fencing panels, trellis and gates, often to the bespoke design requirements of our customers.
The company may have grown in size in its 50 years, but we’ve made sure not to lose sight of what a family business is, and what serving the local community stands for. How often do you now see the director of a company serving at the counter and walking you to the car with your purchases?
In partnership with Stihl, we have recently undergone a full showroom refurbishment as part of our commitment to delivering the best shopping experience and a professional, friendly environment for both our trade and domestic customers. We are proud to offer one the largest ranges of Stihl/Viking products in the country, with virtually every model on display for the customer to pick up and look at in detail.
Our highly knowledgeable staff are always on hand to offer a wealth of information and advice to customers to make the most out of their new purchase(s). When purchasing any mower or garden machine it will be assembled and handed over in a manner that leaves the customer feeling inspired and confident about using it.
With an on site Workshop and Service reception you’ll be able to book your machine in with us, or order Spare Parts. Then there’s our Timber Yard, in which you’ll find Fencing, Gate and Decking supplies, manufactured to the highest standards. We’ll pick and load the items while you wait, or deliver it straight to your doorstep!
