Skyjack Breaks into North Western China
POSTED April 03, 2019
Linamar Corporation’s (TSX:LNR) Skyjack division made its first delivery into North Western China earlier this month. Shaanxi Shuntong Equipment Rental is one of North Western China’s largest supplier of road machinery and aerial work equipment. Their rental products have worked on high profile projects throughout the region and they are adding Skyjack’s simply reliable machines to their equipment lineup.
“Skyjack’s reputation for reliable machines was brought forward to us from some of our partners and we’re excited to place our first order with them,” said Mr. Yang, owner at Shaanxi Shuntong Equipment Rental. “A lot of the projects our customers work on are in tight spaces where having equipment that’s easily maneuverable is critical to completing the job at hand.”
The rental company added Skyjack’s SJIII 4632 DC scissor lift, which is driveable at full height and boasts a maximum working height of 38’ (11.58 m), 450 lbs (204 kg) capacity, and lifts and lowers in under 60 seconds. The electric scissor lift comes standard with a 4’ (1.22 m) roll-out extension deck, which brings its overall platform length to 91” (2.31 m).
“After meeting with Mr. Yang it was clear that increased uptime was a key consideration for their fleet, which is a perfect fit for Skyjack’s simple and reliable philosophy,” said Jack Dai, account manager of sales for Skyjack in Greater China. “We design our equipment to have all service points easily accessible should our customer, or the end user need it, and use off the shelf parts wherever we can to reduce turnaround time for our customers.”
The leader in aerial access equipment has seen a lot of traction within China over the past year, and they dedicate that to their network of customers, external service technicians, and team members.
“Skyjack’s straight forward and simplistic approach was exactly what we were looking for,” Mr. Yang concludes.
