Supporting the investment it has made in South America over recent years JLG is exhibiting at the M&T Expo held in San Paolo Brazil 29 May - 2 June. Tim Morris, JLG's senior vice president of sales, market development and customer support-Americas said that over the past two of years JLG had doubled its workforce and now carries more than $3 million worth of parts inventory in its enhanced aftermarket facility.

"JLG's innovative products improve safety, efficiency and productivity in a diverse range of applications around the world,'' said Mr Morris. "We're thrilled to continue our outreach to the Latin America region, demonstrating our state-of-the-art products as well as our enhanced customer service and support."

While JLG will display its full range of equipment at the M&T Expo, the company will focus on two products Which it believes have tremendous potential in the Latin American market: the 3248RS scissor and LiftPod FS80.

The 3248RS has a 9.7m (32ft) platform height and a 320kg (705lb) load capacity it features passive pothole protection that reduces repair and maintenance costs and direct-drive motors designed to deliver long duty cycles that boost productivity.
