Boehler Named President of Skyjack Inc.


Linamar Corp., Guelph, Ontario, appointed Brad Boehler as president of Skyjack Inc. Since joining Skyjack in 2003, Boehler has held leadership positions, including vice president of engineering and vice president of sales & marketing. Boehler obtained his B.Eng Sc from the University of Western Ontario, and holds the designation of Professional Engineer. He has also been a leader in the industry, chairing a number of committees within ANSI and IPAF.

Boehler’s plan for Skyjack is to grow from a strong North American scissor-lift company into a global full-line aerial work platform supplier, expanding into world markets with new offerings in its telescopic and articulating-boom product lines. “We have built a strong reputation for providing reliable products that are simple, safe and cost-effective,” he said. “As we move forward with our goals, we will stay true to these strengths and principles.”

New product development will focus on improving performance by incorporating new but proven technology where it enhances simplicity, performance and reliability. Global expansion targets include solidifying existing sales and service networks in Asia and South America, and building a stronger presence in North America, Australia and the United Kingdom.
