JLG delivers 1,000th Millennia Military Vehicle

|  August 05, 2008 |

JLG has shipped the 1,000th Millennia Military Vehicle (MMV) telescopic material handler, built for the United States Navy as part of a contract to provide 197 MMVs to the Naval Construction Battalion.

The 1,000th MMV was built over a two-shift operation. As it rolled off the final assembly line JLG team members, many of whom are veterans, gathered to celebrate the milestone and to have their picture taken with the machine.

The first MMV was produced for the United States Marine Corps in 2001 to meet the needs of Combat Service Support Detachment groups. Since 2001, MMVs have been fielded with the Marines and Navy across the states, as well as Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan.
