Aerial rental specialist Skyworks has received JLG’s 100,000th telehandler, 16 years after the aerial manufacturer began to produce them. JLG built a specially modified G10-55A to commemorate the occasion.
Skyworks, based in Buffalo, N.Y., which has had a long relationship with JLG, also purchased JLG’s 100,000th boomlift in 2006, and took delivery of the first JLG 1850SJ Ultra Boomlift in 2014. And Skyworks owner Jerry Reinhart’s father, also named Jerry Reinhart, purchased a JLG lift commemorating the United States bicentennial in 1976 when he was the owner of Access Rentals.
“We’re a family-owned business with a long and successful relationship with JLG that spans three generations,” said Reinhart Jr. “I remember standing with my father when he received the bicentennial lift, and today my son was present when JLG delivered the commemorative G10-55A.
“Our relationship with Skyworks dates back to the company’s founding,” said John Boehme, product manager, telehandlers, JLG. “It’s a relationship we value, not only for the business it brings to us, but also for the opportunities it presents to celebrate together as we reach important milestones like this one.”
