JLG To Start Telehandler Shipments To Cat in August, November

Posted on May 25, 2006

JLG Industries Inc. said it will begin shipments of Caterpillar-branded telehandlers to Cat’s European dealers in August and to North American dealers in November. Last October, JLG and Cat announced a the 20-year strategic alliance agreement, in which JLG will provide exclusively to Caterpillar dealers a full line up of Cat branded telehandler products. “In addition to supporting the alliance agreement, the manufacturing realignment and capacity expansion also provides the additional capacity and flexibility required to better satisfy overall demand for JLG access equipment, as well as ongoing productivity improvement," JLG said.

JLG had previously stated that it would support the North American and Latin American markets from its McConnellsburg, Pa. facility, and the markets in Europe and the rest of the world from its Maasmechelen, Belgium facility.
