Linamar Corp. this week officially named Brad Boehler president of Skyjack Inc. The company previously appointed him president on an interim basis in August 2011.
Since joining Skyjack in 2003, Boehler has held leadership positions of escalating responsibility, including the roles of vice president of engineering and vice president of sales & marketing.
Boehler’s plan for Skyjack is a bold one: to grow from an already strong North American scissorlift company into a global full-line aerial work platform supplier, expanding into world markets with new offerings in its telescopic and articulating-boom product lines. “We have built a strong reputation for providing reliable products that are simple, safe and cost-effective,” Boehler said. “As we move forward with our goals, we will stay true to these strengths and principles.”
Going forward, new product development will focus on improving performance by incorporating new but proven technology where it enhances simplicity, performance and reliability. Global expansion targets include solidifying existing sales and service networks in Asia and South America, and building an even stronger presence in North America, Australia and the United Kingdom.
Skyjack, part of the Linamar Group of companies, is a world leader in the design, manufacture, and support of self-propelled aerial work platforms. Its current product line includes DC electric scissorlifts, engine-powered rough-terrain scissorlifts, telescopic and articulated boomlifts, and telehandlers.
