JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK] and a leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, has announced Erie Events as a first-place winner of the JLG® “Crews Across America” sweepstakes. The organization was chosen among hundreds of qualified entries from crews who entered the contest since its kickoff January 1st.

Erie Events is the hub of four distinct businesses connected to the Erie, Pa. downtown entertainment and cultural district, including the Bayfront Convention Center, Erie Insurance Arena, UPMC Park and the Warner Theatre. In 2018, the four locations hosted approximately 730,000 guests at 800 unique events, according to the company’s annual report.

“The visit and recognition from JLG was an honor for our team,” said Ed Snyder, assistant director of facilities for Erie Events. “For a company of JLG’s size and global presence to take time to visit with our team, it’s a testament to the value they place on interfacing with end users and gathering feedback about their equipment.”

Snyder and his team regularly use JLG equipment to keep their facilities running for thousands of weekly visitors to the various sites. In addition to owning boom and scissor units that primarily support indoor maintenance and event preparations, the crew regularly rents larger lifts for a variety of applications.

“Our needs are year-round and varied,” added Snyder. “From multiple sporting events, concerts, graduations and other indoor events at the arena, to a variety of conferences and trade shows at the convention center, our team is hustling all the time—there is no downtime. And with some major construction projects getting ready to start in 2020 at the theatre and baseball complex, we’ll be keeping our rental market very busy.”

Two crews are being selected monthly through December, for a total of 24 winners. All members selected for recognition will receive great giveaways, including hats, t-shirts and other JLG branded gifts, with one winning crew each month receiving an onsite catered lunch hosted by JLG team members. Additionally, winners will be recognized through JLG’s social media channels, where their stories can be tracked by following #CrewsAcrossAmerica.
