POSTED April 30, 2019
May 1, 2019; Guelph, Ontario – Linamar Corporation’s (TSX:LNR) Skyjack division was on-site with their new customer last week at the Shanghai Auto Show. Beijing Xiaoyou placed their first order with Skyjack earlier this year making this the first year is the rental company is bringing Skyjack equipment on-site for China’s largest auto show.
“We’ve been gaining momentum for Skyjack models across Northern China throughout the past two years due to our reputation for being easy to do business with,” said Jack Dai, sales manager for Skyjack China. “Beijing Xiaoyou is well-known within the local industry as the company to go to for exhibition services and we’re happy they’ve started purchasing more and more Skyjack products to help them with these events.”
The 18th Shanghai Auto Show covers approximately 360,000 square meters of exhibition space including all 12 indoor halls of the National Convention and Exhibition Centre. Beijing Xiaoyou played an integral part in this year’s auto show and helped set up more than 100 exhibitors across four halls with their new fleet of SJIII 3219 and SJIII 4632 DC electric scissor lifts.
“Our main business is in exhibition setup and museum work, which means that our products are always around fairly delicate material,” explained Mr. You, owner at Beijing Xiaoyou. “We’ve helped set up this show for over a decade and, while things have gone smoothly in the past, this year we wanted to ensure we brought machines with a tight turning radius and smooth maneuverability as we were helping premium vehicle manufacturers such as Audi and BMW.”
The electric scissor lifts used at this show, with respective working heights ranging from 25’ (7.62 m) and 38’ (11.57 m), performed a variety of setup tasks including booth construction, audio setup, painting, and more.
“Beijing Xiaoyou is a new customer for Skyjack this year and we’re excited to see that they’ve been putting these machines to good work,” said Dai. “We’re looking forward to seeing more Skyjacks on-site for events in the Shanghai community.”
