JLG to reopen facility closed in 2003

JLG Industries has announced plans to reopen the company’s 340,000-square-foot facility in Orrville, Ohio, which it closed in 2003. The company will use the plant for telehandler product engineering and certain component manufacturing operations located at the New Philadelphia, Ohio, facility it recently sold.

In addition, North American service parts distribution operations, currently located in McConnellsburg, Pa., will be moved to Orrville. JLG says it expects to invest $11 million of capital in the operation.
