JLG Telehandler

After retiring in the late 1960's, John L. Grove started on a cross country RV trip. After spending numerous years establishing his family built crane company with his brother, John had no idea that this trip would bring about the rise of JLG Industries, Inc. The world leader of mobile aerial work platforms and precision materials handling equipment was the end consequence of a road expedition.

All through their trip, John reacquainted himself with past business connections along the way. In combination with these conversations and a noteworthy event; two workers had been tragically electrocuted on scaffolding when the Groves were passing through the Hoover Dam. John uncovered a substantial market for a product that could quickly and securely elevate individuals in the air to accomplish upkeep and other construction services.

Upon returning from their travels, John established a joint venture with two friends and obtained a metal fabrication business in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania. In 1970, starting operations with a crew of twenty personnel, they built and sold the first JLG aerial work platform. The business incorporates many of the basic design essentials of that original lift into current models.

JLG lift trucks have come a ways since Mr. John L. Grove returned to town from his cross-country road trip and since the first aerial work platform debuted on the market. Today, the business proudly continues to expand itself into different marketplaces worldwide and develops new products to make certain customers are capable of being more effective and perform in the workplace within a safer atmosphere.
