JLG Awarded $76.9 Million Contract to
Rebuild Army Forklifts


JLG Industries Inc. has received an order from the United States Army to rebuild 500 All Terrain Lifter Army System (ATLAS) telehandlers and 300 other rough terrain forklifts. Valued at $76.9 million, the contract has a final delivery date of April 2014.

The Continental United States (CONUS) Reset program began in 2004. The purpose of the program is to extend the life of equipment by rebuilding machines to a uniform standard set by the Army. Units from Central Command (CENTCOM) deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan arrive at the JLG Military Support Center, where a core list of items, such as the transmission, engine and axles, are replaced or rebuilt. Other items considered necessary are replaced or refurbished. A new paint job along with a thorough inspection ensures the Reset machines leave the facility in conditions equal to new.

To date, JLG’s Military Support Center, located in McConnellsburg, Pa., has rebuilt more than 800 rough terrain forklifts for the United States Army.
