Skyjack’s Western Commitment to Powered Access

Skyjack’s Western Commitment to Powered Access

I recently visited Skyjack’s western U.S. support facility. During my visit, I learned that in order to better service the western part of the United States, Skyjack had taken over a 100,000 sq.-ft. facility previously established by its parent company, Linamar. Linamar had opened the Glendale, Ariz., operation to develop a solar power project that has since been abandoned.


The West Coast presence allows for Skyjack to be more responsive to regional demands. This facility allows them to ship truckloads of equipment in the west and hold them in inventory. The savings in shipping allows them sell individual units at lower price points, as well as respond to immediate customer needs for deliveries.


In addition to housing inventory, the facility also does sub-assembly welding for items like baskets and guardrails. It is equipped with a variety of overhead cranes, shot blast enclosures, and paint booths for wet and powder coating. These capabilities facilitate the ability to also recondition equipment from a full tear down to partial repair or paint job.
