Oct 15, 2010, 12:21 ET from Skyjack Inc.

GUELPH, Ontario, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- 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. Since 1982, MinnPar has been the trusted source for OEMs seeking a cost-effective solution to the after market service parts management of non-core and discontinued product lines.  

In transitioning the service parts business to MinnPar, Skyjack Inc. also transferred all engineering drawings, parts inventories, customer and supplier lists, and transactional records.

"Our value proposition is a true win-win for Straight Mast Rough Terrain Lift Truck customers and for Skyjack," commented PartsZone CEO Shirish Pareek. "Our main business is to cost-effectively manage the end-of-life service parts business for industry leading products, allowing OEM's 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," stated Chuck Berls, Direct of Customer Support for Skyjack Inc. "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."

To clarify, this affects the previously discontinued straight mast RT lift truck parts only and not the VR range of telehandlers recently acquired by Skyjack. Skyjack will continue to manufacture and support the VR telehandlers range of products directly.
