Skyjack sells straight mast RT lift rights and parts
By Lindsey Anderson15 October 2010
Skyjack, Inc. has sold the rights to manufacture and sell service and replacement parts for all models of the straight mast rough terrain lift truck line to MinnPar, LLC, a subsidiary of PartsZone, LLC.
Skyjack has also transferred all engineering drawings, parts inventories, customer and supplier lists and transactional records to MinnPar, as well.
"Our value proposition is a true win-win for straight mast rough terrain lift truck customers and for Skyjack," said Shirish Pareek, PartsZone chief executive officer. "Our main business is to cost-effectively manage the end-of-life service parts business for industry leading products, allowing OEMs to focus their attention on improved performance and customer service for current and core product lines. We provide exceptional technical and parts support to our dealers worldwide."
"We chose to partner with MinnPar because of their proven track record for customer service," said Chuck Berls, director of customer support for Skyjack. "Their technical and customer support expertise ensures that current or future generation owners of straight mast rough terrain lift trucks will have continued availability of genuine OEM replacement parts."
This affects the previously discounted straight mast RT lift truck parts only and not the Skyjack's VR range of telehandlers. Skyjack will continue to manufacture and support its VR telehandler range.
