Skyjack has received the 2018 Supplier of the Year Award from Germany-based rental company cooperative PartnerLift, at its 14th Annual General Meeting.
The manufacturer has supplied MEWPs to PartnerLift since 2014. “PartnerLift is an association of rental locations throughout Germany and other parts of Europe. More than 85 participants from our 106 member companies came out to the 2018 AGM and we really focused on future collaborations, new technology within our industry, and partnerships for the future,” said Kai Schliephake, managing director at PartnerLift.
PartnerLift placed orders with Skyjack in two stages during the third and fourth quarters last year and Skyjack delivered a fleet of SJIII 3219’s early in the fourth quarter. This class of scissor lift is historically the most popular within this region. The SJIII 3219 DC electric scissor lift has a working height of 25ft (7.62m), and a stowed height of 78.5ft (1.99m).
Rental locations who attended the AGM had the opportunity to test the VR Training Simulator brought by Serious Labs, welcome new member companies, and share their experiences with suppliers first-hand. This was also the first time PartnerLIFT honoured Suppliers of the Year. The criteria was measured on quality, service, and sales and was voted on prior to the event. Skyjack earned the award in the category of self-propelled work platforms.
“We are delighted to receive the Supplier of the Year award,” said Andreas Stumpf, sales & operations manager at Skyjack Germany. “PartnerLifts’s network has such a broad customer base and it is a true team effort from Skyjack effectively serving our customers’ day-by-day demands.”
