By Rob Thompson
JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK] and a leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, announced the extension of a contract with the U.S. Army that increases 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 (TACOM) 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.”
