Brad Boehler, president of Skyjack, kicks off Quest 2013 at The Rental Show in Las Vegas.
Skyjack highlighted plans for substantial future growth by announcing its new tagline, "Simply Reliable," and kicking off Quest 2013, a program to find the oldest working Skyjack scissor lift.
At a press conference held at The Rental Show in Las Vegas this week, Skyjack President Brad Boehler told the crowd the company, a strong leader in the scissor lift market, will build its 250,000th unit in 2013 and plans to beef up some of its other product lines. "Skyjack intends to be the market leader in all aerial work platforms and telehandlers, as well as scissors," he said.
Quest 2013 is a way for Skyjack to celebrate its future by looking at the successes of the past, Boehler said. "Our search for the oldest unit will not be easy. There are so many Skyjacks out there, the world over, offering reliable performance, day in and day out, even after decades in the field."
Quest 2013 applicants will be accepted until Dec. 31, 2013, or when verification of the oldest serial number has been identified. The company with the longest running Skyjack will be presented with a new Skyjack scissor lift.
With this program, Skyjack hopes equipment owners will share experiences of their long-term ownership of Skyjack machines, as well as highlight the products' reliability, durability, and quality. Users of Skyjack scissor lifts are invited to upload images of their working machines with the serial number, year of manufacture, and place of purchase to either: www.facebook.com/skyjackinc, twitter.com/skyjackinc, or www.skyjackquest2013.com.
