Need a boost? JLG Industries' lift equipment can provide that extra reach. Since 1969 when founder John L. Grove invented the first self-propelled boom lift, the company has been providing such products as aerial work platforms, telescopic material handlers, stock pickers (to access high shelving), and power deck trailers for ground-level loading of everything from heavy construction equipment to vending machines. Products are sold under such names as JLG, SkyTrak, and Lull. The company supplies customers in the government, equipment leasing, construction contracting, agricultural, and military markets. Equipment manufacturer Oshkosh Corp. has owned JLG since 2007.
