In the late 1960’s John L. Grove, with his wife Cora set out on a cross country voyage in their RV. Recently retired, after spending numerous years working with his brother to build their crane business into an market leader, John had no idea that fateful trip would allow JLG Industries, Inc to emerge. The world leader of mobile aerial work platforms and precision material handling equipment was the end consequence of a road expedition.
All through their trip, John reacquainted himself with previous business acquaintances along the way. In combination with these conversations and a noteworthy event; two workers were tragically electrocuted on scaffolding when the Groves were passing through the Hoover Dam. John uncovered a substantial marketplace for a product that could quickly and safely elevate people in the air to accomplish maintenance and other building functions.
After returning from their trip, John set up a partnership with two of his friends and obtained a metal fabrication business in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania. Starting with a small crew of twenty staff, they fashioned and sold their first JLG aerial work platform in 1970. The company incorporates some of the basic design essentials of that original lift into existing versions.
JLG lift trucks have come a ways from the time when Mr. John L. Grove came back to town from his cross-country road trip and since the first aerial work platform debuted on the market. These days, the business proudly continues to expand itself into various markets worldwide and develops new products to ensure customers are capable of being more effective and perform in the workplace within a safer atmosphere.
