Military extends JLG contract
By Euan Youdale07 November 2012
JLG Industries has extended its contract with the United States Army by US$10.2 million to help restore military equipment deployed in Afghanistan.
The Reset program administered by the Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Life Cycle Management Command (TACOM) is designed to reverse the effects of combat stress on equipment, ensuring that machines are ‘reset’ to optimal condition.
Under the terms of the $73.8 million contract, JLG is refurbishing its SkyTrak6000M, ATLAS, and ATLAS II military telehandlers, as well as other material handling and construction equipment deployed in Afghanistan. The JLG military service team will perform the work in Bagram and Kandahar, Afghanistan, until 9 August 2013.
“JLG has performed refurbishment work for the Army since August 2004,” said Denny Buterbaugh, JLG Industries vice president, government products and programmes. “We are especially proud of this partnership and the opportunity it affords us to support our troops serving in the field with robust, reliable JLG equipment.”
