Skyjack Inc. has sold the rights to manufacture and sell service and replacement parts for all models of its straight mast rough terrain lift truck line to MinnPar LLC, a subsidiary of PartsZone LLC. Since MinnPar has been a source for OEMs seeking cost-effective solutions to the after-market service parts management of non-core and discontinued product lines.
In transitioning the service parts business to MinnPar, Skyjack also transferred all engineering drawings, parts inventories, customer and supplier lists, and transactional records.
“Our value proposition is a true win-win for straight mast rough terrain lift truck customers and for Skyjack,” said Shirish Pareek, CEO of PartsZone. “Our main business is to cost-effectively manage the end-of-life service parts business for industry-leading products, allowing OEMs to focus their attention on improved performance and customer service for current and core product lines. We provide exceptional technical and parts support to our dealers worldwide.”
“We chose to partner with MinnPar because of their proven track record for customer service,” said Chuck Beris, director of customer support for Skyjack. “Their technical and customer support expertise ensures that current or future generation owners of straight mast rough terrain lift trucks will have continued availability of genuine OEM replacement parts.”
The transaction affects only the previously discontinued straight mast RT lift truck parts and not the VR range of telehandlers recently acquired by Skyjack, which the Guelph, Ontario, Canada-based company will continue to manufacture and support.
