JLG to move service work to Bedford

March 27, 2007

McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. - JLG Industries announced plans Monday to relocate its ServicePlus Mid-Atlantic operation from McConnellsburg to a larger facility in Bedford, Pa., about 40 miles west.

The move will provide the additional capacity necessary to meet the growth in demand for reconditioning, remanufacturing and repair of construction equipment. The official opening is planned for June 2007, JLG said in a news release.

Joseph Dixon, president of JLG ServicePlus, said strong customer demand has driven the need to expand its operations.

"ServicePlus Mid-Atlantic team members have done an outstanding job and their hard work has been a driving factor in our ServicePlus growth, and we look forward to having them at this new, larger facility."

Jeff Rush will manage the facility as the newly appointed director of operations for ServicePlus Mid-Atlantic.

The release did not indicate what impact the move would have on JLG's McConnellsburg work force.

JLG officials could not be reached for comment Monday.
