Skyjack was presented with the 2018 Supplier of the Year Award by German rental company PartnerLIFT. Skyjack has been supplying PartnerLIFT since 2014. This year at PartnerLIFT’s 14th Annual General Meeting, where employees, member companies and suppliers all meet to discuss future plans and industry news, the award was presented to Skyjack.

“PartnerLIFT is an association of rental locations throughout Germany and other parts of Europe,” said Kai Schliephake, managing director. “More than 85 participants from our 106 member companies came out to the 2018 AGM and we really focused on future collaborations, new technology within our industry and partnerships for the future.”

PartnerLIFT placed orders from Skyjack in two stages in the third and fourth quarters of 2018 and Skyjack delivered a fleet of SJIII 3219s early in the fourth quarter. This class of scissorlift is historically the most popular within this region, PartnerLIFT said, and the SJIII 3219 is one of its best-selling products there. With a working height of 25 feet and a stowed height of 78.5 inches, this DC electric scissorlift is popular on a wide variety of jobsites.

Attendees from rental locations who attended the event had the opportunity to test the Virtual Reality Training Simulator brought by Serious Labs. The attendees also had the opportunity to welcome new member companies and share their experiences with suppliers first-hand. The event was the first time PartnerLIFT honored Suppliers of the Year. The criteria, voted on prior to the event, was measured on quality, service and sales. Skyjack earned the award in the category of self-propelled work platforms.

“We are delighted to receive the Supplier of the Year award,” said Andreas Stumpf, sales and operations manager, Skyjack Germany. “PartnerLIFT’s network has such a broad customer base and it is a true team effort from Skyjack effectively serving our customers’ day-by-day demands.”
