Taipei 101 is the tallest building in Taiwan and a key landmark that opened to the public in 2004. “We are very proud to help Taipei 101 maintain its iconic facility through the help of Skyjack’s industry-leading products,” said Jerry Huang, general manager at CIG Power.

“Growing up in Taiwan, I witnessed how rapidly CIG expanded its footprint in the region. To see us participate in such a high-profile project alongside Skyjack is a testament to how far we have come.”

The SJ16 is a zero-emission compact machine with low floor loading and a high level of manoeuvrability, designed to fit in to confined spaces. This makes it ideal for facility maintenance work.

“The model’s lightweight design ensures low ground pressure and floor loading. Its traversing deck increases reach and provides up-and-over capability which helps get a variety of work done inside buildings,” said Huang. “Skyjack’s SJ16 is easy to maintain, offers low cost of ownership, and meets job requirements in tight spaces - something that is especially important at crowded Taiwanese factories.”

CIG began investing in Skyjack machines in 2012. “We feel proud that the partnership between Skyjack and CIG is nearly 10 years strong,” said Simon Cracknell, sales, operations and market development director – Asia. “CIG is an experienced sales and rental company in the equipment industry with quality personnel and products. Their confidence in Skyjack products for the famed Taipei 101 project proves the strength of our simple and reliable philosophy.”
