McConnellsburg, Pa. — December 22, 2014 — JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK] and the world’s leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of access equipment such as aerial work platforms and telescopic handlers, today recognized its 15 year anniversary in Brazil, and reiterated its long term commitment to this important market.  As part of this commitment, JLG is strengthening its position in the market by expanding its aftermarket service and continuing to provide dedicated resources for customers throughout the region.  In addition, JLG is unveiling a new logo featuring the number 15 to highlight the years the company has been in business in Brazil.


“JLG is proud of its 15-year track record of steady growth and presence in Brazil, while delivering innovative solutions to our customers,” said Frank Nerenhausen, JLG Industries President. “JLG’s 15th anniversary is a clear indicator of our long term commitment to the Brazilian market as we forge ahead with plans to make more resources and services available to our customers.” These include a full-service office ready to assist customers in technical support, parts, training and service. In addition, JLG is developing safety and training programs for our after-market customers.

“We are invested in the market and have significant plans to continue to deliver substantial value to our customers, as well as innovations to the industry,” said Marcio Cardoso, JLG Industries Vice President of Sales and Aftermarket South America.   “During our 15-year presence in the market, JLG has increased its workforce in Indaiatuba, recruited local talent and invested human capital and market infrastructure to support customers with innovative products and services.”

Some of JLG’s other notable achievements in Brazil include being one of the first manufacturers of access equipment and lifts to establish in Brazil, as well as one of the first manufacturers of access equipment in Brazil to deploy the shuttle order picking solution in a distribution facility.  This cutting-edge technology supports efficient business operations by expediting the picking process and enabling employees to fill orders at a significantly increased speed.  Another notable achievement is JLG’s mobile app ‘Online Express.’ which allows customers to access direct quotes, warranty service and manuals, all in their native in-country language, making it easier for them to do business with JLG.
