Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based NationsRent last week announced that it is now the authorized JLG telescopic material handler distributor in numerous separate marketing areas in 19 states across the United States.
In each of these areas of responsibility, NationsRent will carry one or more of the JLG brands of material handler: JLG, Lull, SkyTrak or Gradall. Every designated NationsRent distributorship will be responsible for the rental and sale of the product line and will also be the factory authorized service location. As part of becoming an authorized distributor, NationsRent committed to not only rent and sell the product, but to inventory new machines for retail sale, stock a full complement of JLG parts and certify service technicians as factory trained.
"NationsRent is honored to have been chosen by JLG as a national partner,” said Jeff Putman, NationsRent CEO. “Our appointment as an authorized JLG distributor complements our business strategy by allowing us to offer a more complete full-service package of rentals, sales, parts and after-the-sale support to our customers."
Craig Paylor, senior vice president of sales, marketing and customer support for JLG said, "This announcement follows the culmination of actions taken by NationsRent over the past 12 to 18 months that have qualified them to obtain JLG authorized distributor status. NationsRent is not only a sales and rental organization, but also a very service-focused company that JLG is proud to be associated with. Qualifying as an authorized distributor requires a commitment from the entire organization."
