Linamar Corporation’s Skyjack Division is supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October by donating a portion of articulating and telescopic boom sales and selling limited edition t-shirts to benefit the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CIBCF).
The move will help Skyjack meet growing demand for its products in the region. The previous three region organization will be replaced by four regions and the dedicated national account structure will be strengthened.
Skyjack reports that area sales manager, Kevin Fox, has sung his way into a sale – literally. The singer/songwriter was challenged to sing to a crowd of 200 at the British Open golf tournament last month, with the offer to buy an SJ 63AJ in return.
Skyjack has received an order for 40 vertical mast lifts from Force Australia, the leading specialist provider of access equipment in Australia. The lifts will be put to work immediately on the largest ever infrastructure project in South Australia.
Highlights among the 10 products featured at Skyjack’s booth, located at the RIA center (booth 510), include the European unveiling of the SJ 6832 RTE electric rough-terrain scissor lift, which debuted earlier this year.
The California-based company purchased the three Skyjack ZB2044 in a move to win more government contracts. Coastline used CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 to showcase its orders for the new telehandlers, which will boost the company’s rental fleet further still.
Skyjack announced the delivery of an SJ 8841 RTE with a fun look, the idea for which came from a Skyjack design engineer while he was on summer vacation at the Loof Lirpa Field Sports resort in Northern Ontario.
The only machine in its category with four-wheel drive and 45-percent gradeability as standard design, the Skyjack SJ6832 RTE provides end users with a zero-emission scissor lift built with low running costs and high uptime.
Browsing the displays at industry trade shows this spring, it was easy to spot the predominant trends in aerial product designs. Two in particular stand out: boom lifts with working heights over 180 feet, and hybrid scissor and booms.
