JLG Forklift Part - In the late 1960's John L. Grove, with his wife Cora set out on a cross country journey in their RV. Freshly retired, after spending numerous years working with his brother to develop their crane company into an market leader, John had no idea that fateful trip would permit JLG Industries, Inc to emerge. The world leader of mobile aerial work platforms and precision materials handling equipment was the end consequence of a road expedition.
While on their journey, John spent time talking to former business acquaintances whom the Groves stopped to see along the way. These conversations combined with a tragic event-two workers being electrocuted on scaffolding when the Groves were traveling to the Hoover Dam- John uncovered an infinite marketplace for a product that could swiftly and securely elevate people in the air to accomplish upkeep and other construction services.
Upon returning from their travels, John formed a partnership with two friends and bought a metal fabricating business in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania. In 1970, starting operations with a crew of twenty workers, they created and sold the first JLG aerial work platform. The company incorporates some of the simple design elements of that original lift into existing models.
Since then, JLG Forklifts have come a long way from when Mr. John L. Grove came back from his fatefull cross-country journey and since the first JLG aerial platform entered the marketplace. As of today, the company has extended itself into several international marketplaces and continues to develop new machinery to guarantee that clients are able to become safer and more resourceful within their workplace.
