skyjackJune 20, 2013 – Skyjack, a world leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms, will build its
250,000th unit this year. To celebrate the achievement, the company has launched a quest to find the oldest working Skyjack scissor lift. The company wants customers to search their fleets and upload details and images of their oldest
models to dedicated pages on Facebook and Twitter. Since Skyjack was founded in Ontario, chances are good that the winning lift will be somewhere in Canada.

Skyjack announced the search at The Rental Show 2013 in Las Vegas, Nev., on February 11. Announcing the
initiative, Brad Boehler, president of Skyjack, said he expected strong competition for the title of “longest
running Skyjack.”

“We want to celebrate our future by looking at the successes of our past,” he said. “Skyjack scissor lifts are
well-known for their reliability and durability, and when I talk to customers I know they’re always pleased
with the work levels they can achieve over long working lives. That’s why our search for the oldest unit will
not be easy. There are so many Skyjacks out there, the world over, offering reliable performance, day in
and day out, even after decades in the field. We’re really looking forward to hearing our customers’ stories,
and we’ll be sharing them as our search develops.”

Users of Skyjack scissor lifts are invited to upload images, together with details of their machine (including
serial number, year of manufacture and place of purchase) to any of the following online sites:

• www.facebook.com/skyjackinc

• @skyjackinc/#skyjackquest2013

• www.skyjackquest2013.com

Quest 2013 applicants will be accepted until December 31, 2013, or when verification of the oldest serial
number has been identified, whichever is the soonest. The company judged to be running the “world’s
longest running Skyjack” will be presented with a brand new Skyjack scissor platform. Skyjack hopes the
search for the oldest running machine will create an online international community of platform users who

Skyjack’s history dates back to 1969 when a small Canadian machine shop, operating under the name
Haessler-DeWay, began business. Work evolved into manufacturing special-purpose machinery be-
fore the first Skyjack access platform was built in 1984. Today Skyjack is a division within the multi-billion
dollar Linamar Group.
