U.K. rental company Kardon Kontracts Ltd. is the first European company to take delivery of a JLG 185-foot boomlift. JLG Industries sent a JLG 1850SJ Ultraboom lift to Kardon, the first of four units purchased by the firm.

Kardon Kontracts became the first non-North American company to order an 1850SJ when the units were introduced in March at ConExpo. Kardon Owner Gordon McGruer said his Ultraboom is already rented out to work on refurbishing a hangar.
