JLG Forklift Parts - In the late 1960's John L. Grove, with his wife Cora embarked on on a cross country excursion in their RV. Newly retired, after spending several years working with his brother to build their crane company into an market leader, John had no idea that fateful trip would allow JLG Industries, Inc to emerge. The world leader of mobile aerial work platforms and precision material handling equipment was the end consequence of a road trip.
Whilst on their journey, John spent time conversing with past business associates 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 going to the Hoover Dam- John uncovered a substantial market for a product that could swiftly and securely lift people in the air to accomplish upkeep and other construction functions.
Following their return from vacation, John set up a partnership with two of his friends and bought a metal fabricating company in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania. Opening with a small crew of twenty employees, they fashioned and sold their first JLG aerial work platform in 1970. The business incorporates many of the simple design essentials of that original lift into current versions.
Since then, JLG Forklifts have come a long way from when Mr. John L. Grove returned from his fatefull cross-country journey and since the first JLG aerial platform entered the market. As of today, the company has extended itself into many different international markets and continues to cultivate modern equipment to ensure that clients are able to become safer and more efficient within their workplace.
