The IPAF Manufacturers’ Technical Committee has elected Phil Godding, JLG senior product safety and reliability engineer, as chairman, and Ian McGregor, Skyjack product safety manager, as vice-chairman, effective immediately.

After three successful years in the role, Brad Boehler, president of Skyjack, stepped down as chairman of the committee in March. 

Godding is based in the UK and has been responsible at JLG for safety-related matters in the EAME region for the last six years. “Building on the work of my predecessor Brad Boehler, who I would like to thank for his service to this group, the IPAF Manufacturers’ Technical Committee will continue to provide leading expertise and guidance on MEWP/AWP technical matters,” said Godding. “I look forward to representing this committee, further strengthening the relationship of manufacturers with other IPAF members and leading our industry in the development of a clear strategy long-term for continued improvement.”

McGregor is based in Canada and has been a product safety manager at Skyjack for the past two years and with the company for eight and half years. "I look forward to working with Phil and the members of the IPAF Manufacturers’ Technical Committee to continue addressing issues of importance to the design and manufacture of MEWPs/AWPs,” said McGregor.
