JLG Industries has been awarded a US $23.7 million contract from the US Department of the Army for refurbishment of All-Terrain Lifter Army System (ATLAS) vehicles and SkyTrak(R) Model 6000M vehicles, the predecessor to the ATLAS product.

JLG has performed refurbishment work for the US Army since August 2004, generating approximately $51 million of revenue since that time. This contract is a continuation of that work and will span approximately 12 months.

“This new contract builds upon the partnership between the US Army and JLG and reflects the trust and confidence they have in our company and our programmes,” said David Peacock, vice president, government products and programs, JLG.

“JLG has refurbished more than 450 vehicles for the US Army that are used in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. In fact, SkyTrak(R) Model 6000M vehicles were used during Operation Desert Storm. The fact that these vehicles are still in use today is a tribute to the effectiveness of the Army’s reset program and to the quality of work performed by JLG. We are proud to support the US military and look forward to continuing this relationship in the years ahead.”

JLG Industries is the world’s leading producer of access equipment (aerial work platforms and telehandlers). It’s diverse product portfolio encompasses leading brands such as JLG(R) aerial work platforms; JLG, SkyTrak(R), Lull(R) and Gradall(R) telehandlers; and an array of complementary accessories that increase the versatility and efficiency of these products for end users.
