Skyjack hosts vaccination centre

Canadian aerial lift and telehandler manufacturer Skyjack is to host a new vaccination centre at its premises in Guelph, Ontario, Canada - one of three in the city. United Rentals has also assisted the effort with the provision of equipment and materials to adapt the building and help make the location a success. The new vaccination centre, which will open later today, is located at 201 Woodlawn Road West, Guelph. More information can be found at the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph (WDG) Public Health website:

The Skyjack vaccination centre

Skyjack president Ken McDougall said: “When our parent company Linamar came to us with this opportunity, we knew we had the perfect space to support this initiative. We typically host hundreds of customers throughout the year at our customer access centre, and with travel restrictions the space has gone largely underutilized in recent months.”

United Rentals district manager Scott Teron added: “When Skyjack reached out to us about their equipment requirements to help make this vaccination site successful. We were ready to help and are ensuring their team has all the equipment and solutions needed to transform their space into something that will benefit the whole community.”

Linda Hasenfratz, chief executive of Skyjack owner Linamar, said: “I am just so proud of our vaccination clinic team, made up of dedicated people from inside and outside of our company, for the work they have done to launch the clinic in just a few short weeks. We could not have achieved that without close collaboration with the WDG Public Health Unit and a strong unified team. We have created a fantastic partnership here in WDG that is a great example for other communities to follow. Vaccinating our entire population is the single most important factor towards getting back to a normal life and we are proud to play a role in that in our community.”
