Brit European – 100 Years and Counting!

2024 marks the 100-year birthday of the Brit European Group!

The last century has seen a lot of change across the world and in particular our industry – but one thing that has remained constant is the Brit European Group’s dedication to quality and being at the cutting edge of technology and innovation.

Current CEO Graham Lackey is only the 4th CEO in the company’s history, and only with that level of commitment and stability can you reach such an amazing milestone as clocking up your century!

Our history is full of momentous achievements – from being pioneers in cross channel movements in the 1960s and 1970s, to growth, expansion and awards ever since, Brit European has gone from strength to strength.  2023 was a massive landmark in our history with two major achievements – the acquisition of Richard Long Transport and the expansion into Europe that this brings, and the official opening of the ground breaking Vita Nova Centre, setting the industry standard for how new sites can be built in an ecologically positive way.

But we didn’t get where we are by resting on our laurels, and 2024 promises to be another exciting year for us!  Not only do we have a bit event planned at the end of August, but we have commissioned 4 GOLD trucks to celebrate our birthday.  You may have seen some pictures on social media – get ready for a whole lot more as we let them loose around the country.  Coming soon to a Truck Event near you!

We’re really pleased with these trucks – as you can see from the video, they look pretty spectacular!  Like and follow our social media pages to keep track of them as we plan for them to make appearances at as many truck and community events as possible over the coming months.  Want one of our 4 Kings (of the road) to make an appearance at your event this summer?  Drop us a line at
