LGMG North America to relocate
Chinese aerial lift manufacturer LGMG is relocating its north American corporate headquarters following the adverse rulings from US Department of Commerce and International Trade Commission, which imposed high import tariffs on its products.
LGMG North America has begun implementing a restructuring strategy in order to strengthen its after sales support and expand its operations in Canada. As part of that strategy, it is relocating its corporate headquarters to Dallas, Texas, and will consolidate its warehouse operations to reduce overheads. This will include combining its new headquarters with its parts and service support operations.

This is likely to close once the relocation is complete.
It has also opened two new Canadian warehouse operations, one in Vancouver, British Columbia and the other, in partnership with its distributor Cisolift, in St-Germain-de-Grantham, near Montreal, Quebec.
North American chief executive Eric Liner said: “Centralising and combining our aftermarket operations strengthens our customer support and makes good business sense. We have also aligned ourselves with a great partner in Eastern Canada, Cisolift, who has a wealth of experience in the access equipment industry, and strong relationships throughout the region. And we are excited for the opportunity to build a similar distribution network in the West with our new Vancouver Warehouse.”
The company has also said that it is on target for another year of “robust growth” and states that it is “certain to become a permanent fixture in the North American market on its way to becoming North America’s aerial lift manufacturer of choice.”
