Skyjack and COVID-19
POSTED March 20, 2020
To our customers, partners, suppliers, and team members,
We would like to inform you of any possible effects that the COVID-19 outbreak may have on our daily business operations.
We at Skyjack remain here for you in different ways. While face to face communication is limited at this time, we are taking necessary measures to ensure that sales, service, and parts supplies for our customers are minimally affected. We are available via phone and email, for whatever you may need and have comprehensive service and familiarisation materials online at to help you.
Despite the difficulties, we all face, Skyjack has customers and partners who are looking for product, parts and support. The need to care for our customers in a timely, professional and sympathetic manner remains essential to “our easy to business with” attitude.
Our parent company Linamar has established a task force to manage the COVID-19 impact and are gathering information daily from our global operations, and adjusting plans as required. The sooner we can all act to contain the spread of the virus, the sooner we will all be back to work and lessen the human and economic fallout.
We are keeping our employees safe, our customers supplied with their needs, and mitigating the financial impact of the situation as best we can.
Ultimately, the extent of disruption remains hard to quantify. We do not have a full view of the implications and consequences because the virus is still affecting new areas every day. We do recommend practicing social distancing in the short term and are advising customers to look to their medium-term needs now, so that fleet supply needs are not negatively impacted down the line.
Ken McDougall, President
