JLG appoints global supply chain lead
By Euan Youdale28 July 2022
Construction equipment industry-veteran Andy Daw has joined JLG Industries as its new vice president of global procurement and supply chain. He takes on the position at parent company Oshkosh’s Access Equipment segment, which includes JLG aerial equipment and Jerr-Dan towing and recovery equipment brands.
In his role, Daw leads the division’s global procurement and supply chain teams, providing a strategy for growth and implementing initiatives to build a resilient supply chain for the company.
Daw comes to the position with more than 20 years of experience in the heavy equipment and engine industries. “The complementary combination of procurement and supply chain responsibilities in this role appealed to me because it allows me to use my understanding of how the market works and apply my knowledge of the industry’s supply chain dynamics to build healthy relationships with vendors,” said Daw. “My emphasis is on fostering collaboration to increase efficiencies and drive growth — not just for the Access segment but also for our business partners.”
Before joining Oshkosh, Daw built and led globally diverse supply chain and engineering teams for Caterpillar and Perkins Engines. “With JLG’s strong global brand presence and people-first culture, I look forward to leading procurement and supply chain efforts at a company of this caliber,” Daw added.
According to Daw, he will help JLG navigate the current market uncertainty by calling on both global and domestic suppliers to be part of the solution. He said it’s not about location but where the organisation’s demands are best met. “Moving forward,” he added, “the team’s continued focus will be on developing and supporting partnerships in the supply chain that will sustain JLG’s competitive advantage, enabling us to serve our customers better than anyone else in the industry by meeting their needs today and in the future.”
