Skyjack Sells Straight-Mast Forklift Parts and Rights to MinnPar

Skyjack Inc., Guelph, Ontario, has sold the rights to manufacture and sell service and replacement parts for all models of the straight-mast rough-terrain forklift line it acquired from Volvo CE in 2008 to MinnPar LLC, a subsidiary of PartsZone LLC. The sale only affects the discontinued straight-mast forklift line and not the VR range of telehandlers. Skyjack will continue to manufacture and support the VR telehandlers range of products directly.

In transitioning the service parts business to MinnPar, Skyjack Inc. also transferred all engineering drawings, parts inventories, customer and supplier lists, and transactional records. "We chose to partner with MinnPar because of their proven track record for customer service," said Chuck Berls, director of customer support for Skyjack. "[Its] technical and customer support expertise ensures that current or future generation owners of straight-mast rough-terrain lift trucks will have continued availability of genuine OEM replacement parts."
