JLG Industries, a leading global manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms and telehandlers, will be featured on a segment of “Inside the Blueprint” on Father’s Day, June 16, at 4:30 p.m. EST on Fox Business. Following its debut airing, the show can be viewed on JLG’s YouTube channel or through syndication across more than 150 U.S. television channels.
According to the show’s website, the latest “Inside the Blueprint” series is examining four crucial steps related to cutting-edge products and services in commercial construction: The Inspiration, the Idea, the Process and the Impact.
JLG’s segment will feature numerous products and staff members, including interviews with Frank Nerenhausen, JLG president; Guru Bandekar, global vice president of product management and development; and Rick Smith, senior director of global product training.
“It’s very timely and appropriate that JLG is being featured on Father’s Day, as we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the company, which was founded by the father of the access industry, John L. Grove,” said Jennifer Stiansen, JLG director of marketing. “Inspired by providing a safer way to work at height, our founder not only started a company, but an entire industry.”
On January 9, 1969, John L. Grove rallied a small group of people around one big idea—create a safer way to work at height. This seed idea came to life with the introduction of the first mobile elevating work platform. Grove’s passion for safety and his pioneering spirit continue to be carried out today by more than 6,000 JLG employees around the world.
While the boom lift marked the start of JLG, the company’s product portfolio has steadily expanded over the years to include a variety of award-winning hydraulic and electric drive scissor lifts, telescopic handlers, vertical lifts and a wide range of low-level access solutions. Far more than just products, JLG today leads the industry in its after-the-sale parts, service and training offerings to ensure productivity, profitability and continued safety improvements on the job site.
