McConnellsburg, Pa. (PRWEB) September 12, 2017
JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK], and a leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, recently opened a new service center in Rock Hill, South Carolina. JLG® adds its newest 13,800-square-foot, seven-bay facility to the company’s existing service centers in Houston, Riverside, California, and Hagerstown, Maryland.
Like the Houston, Riverside and Hagerstown locations, the Rock Hill facility will inspect, maintain, and repair all brands of lift and access equipment at the JLG facility or on location at a customer’s jobsite. Services include quarterly and annual ANSI-required aerial work platform inspections, preventive and planned maintenance, and light and heavy repairs. The center also offers mobile service, where factory-trained technicians with fully equipped vehicles visit customer jobsites, for maintenance and repairs.
“Many of our customers are focused on their core construction and rental businesses. They look to JLG as an extension of their service operation to help keep their fleet operating at peak performance,” said Jonathan Dawley, JLG Industries global vice president, aftermarket. “By adding locations in key markets, we are better able to meet our customers’ needs while providing quicker response times.”
In addition to the Charlotte-area service center, JLG plans to add branches in Atlanta and Orlando within the coming year, demonstrating its continued commitment to its customer base. These centers will complement the recent opening of the JLG East Coast Parts Distribution Center in Atlanta, which optimizes parts availability and delivery times to east coast based customers.
In addition to its seven service bays, the new facility features a wash bay and two 15-ton overhead cranes. It sits on 8.7 acres of land, which includes a two-acre equipment storage area.
