JLG opened its new east coast parts distribution centre in Atlanta earlier this month.
The 316,000 square foot distribution centre will stock more than 65,000 SKUs. The parts offering from this facility will include all products from the JLG Genuine, JLG Reman, and MaxQuip lines. All available parts can be shipped next-day delivery in North America.
“Opening this new distribution center, in addition to the Las Vegas facility opened earlier this year, supports our overall plan to strategically place facilities in areas that result in better service for our customers,” said Jonathan Dawley, global vice president, aftermarket at JLG Industries.
The new facility began shipping parts on 5 July to select areas. Shipments will ramp up over time, with the expectation that it will be fully operational by mid-September.
Customers will continue to use JLG’s Online Express customer portal or retail order hotline. “We anticipate our new multi-warehouse parts distribution network will enable us to better serve the needs of JLG customers across the country, resulting in improved uptime and a reduced total cost of ownership,” said Dawley.
Currently, all international shipments are initiated from JLG’s Orville, Ohio-based distribution center. These shipments will transition to the new Atlanta-based parts centre over the next few months.
