By Euan Youdale29 June 2020
JLG Industries has announced plans to close its manufacturing facility in Medias, Romania, next year.
“In an effort to optimise and better align operations to support our customers and enable sustainable growth, JLG conducted an assessment of its global manufacturing footprint and has made the decision to close the Company’s manufacturing facility in Medias, Romania,” said Karel Huijser, general manager and vice president of JLG EMEAIR.
“This move follows significant investments that we recently made in a new manufacturing facility for PowerTowers and a JLG customer innovation centre in the UK and a state of the art JLG service centre in Stockholm, Sweden. We remain committed to our customers in the region, and production will be redistributed across other global JLG facilities.”
The company intends to cease all operations in Medias, Romania by 30 June, 2021.
