McCONNELLSBURG, Pa.JLG Industries recently announced the grand opening of its third ServicePLUS location in Kennesaw, Ga., near Atlanta. ServicePLUS provides equipment repair, maintenance and reconditioning, equipment inspections, mobile service and training on all JLG-manufactured products as well as those of competing manufacturers.
