JLG promotes autism awareness

January 05, 2009

McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. -- JLG Industries recently produced a boom lift for a company in Indiana to help promote autism awareness.

AirWorx Construction Equipment & Supply, an equipment rental, sales and service company based in Indianapolis, contacted JLG about the idea. AirWorx agreed to purchase the boom lift for its rental fleet and JLG agreed to paint it a special color and create unique "jigsaw puzzle" graphics that would cover the entire surface of the machine to symbolize the pieces of the autism puzzle that have yet to be completed.

The boom lift will be rented to AirWorx's customers, and a percentage of the rental income will be donated to fund autism-related activities. In addition to AirWorx's contribution, rental customers can elect to contribute an additional amount over the rental rate, with 100 percent of that amount going directly to autism-related programs.

After receiving the boom lift, AirWorx rented it to Tonn and Blank Construction Co., a Michigan City, Ind.-based company that offers general construction, design/build and project management services to the institutional, commercial and industrial markets. The machine was delivered to a construction site in Greenwood, Ind., where Tonn and Blank was building an addition to St. Francis Hospital.

As a thank-you to customers who rent the JLG boom lift, AirWorx will have the customer's name, project name and amount of money their rental of the machine raised for autism printed on a label that will be placed on top of one of the colored jigsaw piece graphics on the machine.
