As such, we continuously look for ways to reduce our carbon footprint.”

Nerenhausen added, “Strategic energy management not only helps to reduce our company’s energy related spending, but it also improves JLG business processes. I’d like to congratulate our Shippensburg management team for being progressive and the first of all Oshkosh plants to achieve the 50001 Ready recognition.
