Skyjack celebrated over a year of business in Brazil recently during its "Skyfest" event.

Skyjack Brazil used its recently opened facility in Indaiatuba, near São Paulo, to welcome over 150 customers to celebrate a year that has exceeded expectations.

Local staff and most of Skyjacks’ senior management team enjoyed a memorable evening of Brazilian hospitality in the form of “Skyfest.” The normally functional industrial facility was transformed into a festive atmosphere. A key part of the event was the opportunity for Skyjack to show its commitment to the Brazil market and the great strides that it has taken since the M&T show in May 2012.

“Skyjack has enjoyed an enviable reputation for scissor type product, largely based on their simple reliability, quality and solid performance," said Brad Boehler, president of Skyjack. "That has led to a situation in 2013 where we will manufacture our 250,000th machine. A quarter of a million machines is something we are very proud of and an achievement that means we are the worlds’ leading scissor manufacturer. We look forward to expanding that reputation with our boom product.”

Adriano Battazza, general manager of Skyjack Brazil added: “In less than a year Skyjack has taken a leadership position in the market for scissor products in Brazil. For some time Brazil has shown an interest in Skyjack products and a key part of our timing of the decision to come to the market has been to ensure that we supported the market and customers not only with well-designed and reliable products but with the appropriate aftermarket support. I am pleased to say our parts inventory and delivery performance is such that we have in excess of a 95 percent same day pick rate.”
