New JLG service centre focuses on sustainability

JLG service centre Las Vegas JLG’s new Las Vegas-based service centre.

 JLG Industries has opened a 30,000-square-foot Las Vegas Service Centre to service equipment rentals and owned machines in the western US.

Complete with eight shop bays and two acres of storage space, the location allows JLG and its team of 10 technicians to provide maintenance on large fleets and build out its customer base.

In addition, the new facility, located in North Las Vegas has overhead crane capacity that will enable heavy-duty repair on large machines to be completed safely and efficiently. With the three 10 tonne and two 5 tonne cranes, JLG is bringing what it describes as much-needed repair capability to customers in the area.

“The new service center enables JLG to reach more western US customers, and do so in a more sustainable manner,” said Ken Ferguson, JLG Senior Director of Operations. “This service center -  JLG’s fifth service center location and its only location west of Texa - will help keep JLG fleets at peak performance and round out service offerings from JLG and its Authorized Service Providers.”

Sustainable features

With JLG’s commitment to sustainability, delivering innovative, energy-efficient solutions was a priority when building this new service centre, said the company. Two of the centre’s key features promote a greener approach to servicing equipment.

JLG implemented a ‘first-of-its-kind’ exterior wash pad on site that recirculates and filters water to reduce waste and prevent chemicals from seeping into the sewage system. The water is collected within a floor basin to be treated and repurposed, and over time any waste that’s generated is separated and hauled away for disposal.

Additionally, the company operates the new facility with a Solar Power Lift Dock that utilises sensors to adjust for height variations of equipment loaded into the centre. It has also incorporated this solar solution at other JLG service locations as a more sustainable alternative to hydraulic or electrical lift docks.

“JLG provides simple, effective solutions that create a more efficient service center experience while helping the environment,” Ferguson added. “It’s our vision that the long-term impact of these energy solutions can help offset carbon emissions within the market.”
