Skyjack started to manufacture scissor lift platforms back during 1986. The company continued to make their product throughout the 1990s, becoming a world leader in the aerial lift industry sector. Eventually, Skyjack grew to more than 30% market share overall. Even these days, the company maintains their dominance as a major player who has rapidly adapted to the changing face of the industrial equipment business.
Factors like their commitment to reliability and quality have been important to Skyjacks solid reputation. They are recognized worldwide as being the manufacturer of the best scissor lifts within the world. The Skyjack product line is manufactured and sold all over the world.
Skyjack was purchased by Linamar Corporation, LNR on the TSX during August 2002. Linamar is recognized for being a top manufacturer of modules, assemblies and precision-machined parts. Linamar's solid balance sheet offers Skyjack with long-term stability and increased strength in general. Skyjack presently has production facilities within Utah, Hungary and the US with support offices in Europe and Asia.
The company has many self-propelled scissor lifts in its lineup, with models that can work at heights up to 56ft. Skyjack became a leader in the industry by offering equipment features that combined serviceability, durability, service and quality, making Skyjack scissor lifts recognized throughout the globe for product dependability. The current Boom lift model lineup of the company consists of telescopic booms. These models offer telescopic booms which feature work heights varying from 45 to 71 feet. The company intends further expand the boom lift product line in the future.
The acquisition of Volvo's Material Handling Equipment business in August 2007 complements the products obtained in the purchase of Carelift Equipment. These acquisitions have enhanced Skyjack's Telehandler product offering in both the VR series telehandlers and the Boom Zoom series. These acquisitions provide the company an opportunity to grow with the additional manufacturing capacity. Skyjack continues to lead the way in the business, providing reliable lift solutions.
