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. Newly retired, after spending several years working with his brother to assemble their crane business into an industry leader, John had no idea that momentous trip would permit JLG Industries, Inc to emerge. The world leader of mobile aerial work platforms and precision material handling technologies was the end result of a road expedition.
Whilst on their trip, John spent time conversing with former business associates whom the Groves stopped to see along the way. These conversations combined with a tragic incident-two workers being electrocuted on scaffolding when the Groves were traveling to the Hoover Dam- John discovered an infinite market for a product that could swiftly and safely elevate individuals in the air to accomplish upkeep and other construction functions.
Upon returning from their travels, John formed a joint venture with two friends and obtained a metal fabricating company in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania. In 1970, opening operations with a crew of twenty employees, they created and sold the first JLG aerial work platform. The company incorporates some of the basic design elements of that original lift into current models.
JLG forklifts have come a long way since Mr. John L. Grove came back to town from his cross-country road trip and since the initial aerial work platform debuted on the market. Today, the business proudly continues to expand itself into a range of markets worldwide and develops new products to make sure consumers are capable of being more effective and perform in the workplace within a safer atmosphere.
