Early has more than 25 years of experience in the construction and construction equipment industries, with brands such as Manitowoc (Grove, Manlift and Potain), JLG and most recently with Volvo Construction Equipment.

“Skyjack has always had a reputation for reliable product and for being easy to deal with,” Early said. “I am looking forward to building on that firm foundation as Skyjack introduces more boom product and continues to expand the entire product line globally. We want to extend our reputation as one of the world’s leading scissor manufacturers to be recognized now as a leading global full line aerial work platform supplier.”

Early will be based in Guelph, Ontario.
