THE BRISCOE STORY
R.T. Briscoe (Nigeria) PLC (“Briscoe”) was incorporated in Nigeria on 9th March, 1957, as a Private Limited Liability Company and became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the East Asiatic Company Ltd A/S (“EAC”) of Copenhagen- Denmark in 1961. The Company became a public Company in 1973 and the shares were listed for quotation on the Nigerian Stock Exchange in 1974. In August 2002, EAC divested its shareholding in Briscoe to Nigerian investors.
Our Milestones: A Thoroughbred Heritage of Pride
Our Early Years
The Company started its business activities in Nigeria with the importation of building materials and some English trucks under an agency arrangement brokered by its parent Company. Since 1957, when Briscoe was incorporated, the Company has witnessed tremendous growth and has diversified its area of operations to include the sales and service of motor vehicles and technical equipment.
Briscoe has since 1957 under the trade name “Briscoe Motors” been a dealer of Toyota vehicles in Nigeria. Briscoe became a dealer of Volvo cars in 1970 through a Concessionaire Agreement dated June 18th and July 9th 1970. Between 1970 and August 1992, Briscoe served as the exclusive dealer for Volvo vehicles in Nigeria with sales and service outlets in various parts of the country until the Agreement was mutually terminated by both parties.
THE NEW BRISCOE
The use of technology in business has taken a sudden but remarkable upsurge in the history of man. In the old times, business took a slow pace, thanks to the lack of tools that would allow for faster business transactions. Everything was done with the help of some mechanical tools and the bare hands, which made it unthinkable to do business instantly.
A short track in the history of technology in business allows one to see the radical yet dramatic shift from the old business procedures to the innovative approaches as seen today. In addition, it also gives one a better understanding of how important the use of technology is in business.
It’s however amazing to see that lots of businesses in this part of the world are yet to enjoy optimal use of the available technologies especially to the benefits of their businesses and in so doing effecting a standard finishing on their productivity and profitability.
