Since joining Skyjack in 2003, Boehler
has held leadership positions of escalating responsibility, including
the roles of vice-president of engineering and vice-president of sales and marketing. Boehler obtained his bachelor of engineering science from the University of
Western Ontario, and holds the designation of Professional Engineer. He
has also proven to be a leader in the industry, chairing a number of
committees within the American National Standards Institute and the International Powered Access Federation. Boehler’s plan for Skyjack is to grow from an already strong North American scissor-lift company
into a global full-line aerial work platform supplier, expanding into
world markets with new offerings in its telescopic and articulating-boom
product lines.  “We have built a strong reputation for providing
reliable products that are simple, safe and cost-effective.  As we move
forward with our goals, we will stay true to these strengths and
principles”, said Boehler.

“We are thrilled to see Brad step into this much deserved role”, said
Linamar president and COO Jim Jarrell. “He is a solid team player with
great expertise in aerial work platforms, a market we plan to continue
to grow our market share in.” New product development will focus on
improving performance by incorporating new but proven technology where
it enhances simplicity, performance and reliability. Global expansion
targets include solidifying existing sales and service networks in Asia
and South America, and building an even stronger presence in North
America, Australia and the United Kingdom.
