“Asia is a growing market that can’t be ignored and this facility is a testament to our commitment to help grow the access market there,” Simon Cracknell, Sales, Operations, and Market Development Director for Skyjack Asia said.
“As we did with the Chinese market, we started first with sales and service and now have a full team operating from our Gyeonggi-do, South Korea office led by General Manager JC Chun.
“JC’s experience working with Doosan Bobcat in the US and Asia-Pacific markets made him an excellent fit for our team.”
A confident move for Skyjack

“The MEWP industry in Asia is relatively new and has a bright future as more people begin to see the productivity benefits of MEWPs over scaffolding and other traditional methods of working at height,” JC said.
“Our new Korean facility brings more convenience to our customers and amplifies Skyjack’s brand awareness in the South Korean market.”
