JLG to step up telehandler production

JLG has announced an expansion to its telehandler manufacturing capacity, taking further space at the 46,500 square metre Oshkosh facility in Jefferson City, Tennessee. News[39469](The company began producing equipment at the facility) this time last year.

The move is part of the company’s strategy to expand telehandler sales in the growing agricultural market, while freeing up space at its McConnellsburg and Shippensburg facilities in Pennsylvania as well as in Leon, Mexico where it is investing in aerial work platform production improvements.

JLG president Frank Nerenhausen said: “We will invest approximately $120 million in our Tennessee facility over the next two years to increase SkyTrak manufacturing by at least 50 percent to meet growing demand for telehandlers. Expanding our operational capacity in Jefferson City will enable a ramp up in production to meet the needs of our customers today and into the future.”

“Our investments will not only boost capacity to meet the rapidly rising demand for our products in a relatively short amount of time but also automates the way we fabricate and build JLG equipment,” he added.
