Power Towers New Livery
JLG Company, Power Towers Ltd is a leading manufacturer of low-level access equipment. It has announced that the brand will discontinue its traditional blue livery and adopt the JLG low-level access colours of orange and grey.
Jonathan Dawson, general manager of Power Towers, says, “The orange and grey expression of JLG’s low-level access product appearance offers a strong foundation in the access equipment market. In support of our long-term vision, growing the low-level access business, the revision of our colours is yet another step in increasing the global install base for our products. We anticipate that the first orange and grey machines will be marketed second half of this calendar year.”
When Leicester-based Power Towers was acquired by JLG, one of the goals was to realise its manufacturing potential and sales potential via JLG’s network while staying true to its position as pioneers in the industry. Meanwhile it has doubled machine shipments and gained significant traction on the US market.
