More than 30 years ago John L Grove saw the need for people to work safely and productively up in the air. The telescopic boom lift he invented started a company (JLG) – and an industry.
JLG Industries is the Australian market leader in the supply of access equipment, with a wide range of mobile aerial work platforms and specialised material handling equipment renowned for its quality, performance and innovation.
The strength, carrying capacity, versatility and safety of JLG stock pickers, vertical mast lifts, scissor lifts, boom lifts, lighting towers and telehandlers has made them the first choice of hire and rental companies and contractors for more than 20 years.
Since 1970 JLG Australia’s parent company, JLG Industries Inc has been a global innovator in the design and production of aerial work platforms. It has researched market requirements and developed equipment that meets and exceeds occupational health and safety requirements.
From a small metal fabrication business in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania JLG Industries Inc has grown to become the world’s leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of access equipment.
JLG began Australian manufacture and sales in 1983, quickly becoming the dominant market force here by supplying innovative products backed by excellent service and parts support.
It’s all part of the commitment to the Australian market which has made JLG the number one brand of choice for access equipment since the day it sold its first unit here.
