JLG Industries, an Oshkosh Corp. company and leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, has extended its contract with the U.S. Army, increasing the value of the existing contract by $10.2 million for the reset of theater-provided equipment deployed in Afghanistan.
The Reset program administered by the Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Life Cycle Management Command is designed to reverse the effects of combat stress on equipment, ensuring that machines are “reset” to optimal condition.
Under the terms of the $73.8 million contract, JLG is refurbishing its SkyTrak 6000M, ATLAS, and ATLAS II military telehandlers, as well as other material handling and construction equipment deployed in Afghanistan. The JLG military service team will perform the work in Bagram and Kandahar, Afghanistan, through Aug. 9, 2013.
“JLG has performed refurbishment work for the Army since August 2004,” said Denny Buterbaugh, JLG Industries vice president – government products and programs. “We are especially proud of this partnership and the opportunity it affords us to support our troops serving in the field with robust, reliable JLG equipment.”
JLG Industries is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of access equipment. Its product portfolio includes JLG aerial work platforms; JLG, SkyTrak and Lull telehandlers.
