Skyhire Pty Ltd, a provider of hire equipment in the ACT and Queanbeyan since 2004, has made a name for itself amongst the many clients who have come to rely on their provision of quality products and services.

These include reduced scheduled times for trades, increased site safety, reduced project costs and improved quality of construction practices - all huge advantages for Skyhire's clients and also a huge part of the reason why Skyhire won the Master Builders ACT's Supplier of Year Award 2014. 
 
Executive Director Master Builders ACT, John Miller, commented on Skyhire's recent success. 
 
"This award is a well-deserved recognition of Skyhire's high level professional and service standards."
 
"Skyhire are a committed group of professionals who blend an experienced management team with a strong focus on safety and service, providing a hire service that meets our industry's high standards and demands for products and services of the highest calibre," Miller continued.
 
 "Skyhire's commitment to constantly striving to invest and innovate ensures their customers have a true competitive advantage."
 
According to Skyhire Manager Robert Sutherland, this advantage is greatly supported by the hard-working JLG 4017PS Telehandlers that not only support Skyhire's business, but in Robert's words "make our business".
 
"Working with clients such as Lend Lease, Leightons and John Hindmarsh, along with many local Canberra builders, our JLG Telehandlers have been crucial in moving the many items we've been required to lift on multi-storey projects," Sutherland explained.
 
They have also been crucial in delivering the goods for less common tasks that Skyhire have been called upon thanks to their "Can Do" approach.
 
"We've lifted a helicopter out of the Brindabella Mountains after it crashed, lifted a couple of rhinos for Canberra Zoo and also moved 3 metre high glass panels into place for Canberra International Airport – and it's all been 100per cent JLG," Sutherland said. 
 
"JLG provides A1 top quality equipment and they provide excellent support in terms of customer service, breakdowns and repairs.
 
"No matter how good machines are, and JLG machines are outstanding, there are always breakdowns - but JLG are strides ahead of others, getting in there and always getting us back in action."
 
Bob Mules, JLG General Manager Australia and New Zealand, was keen to express his congratulations to Skyhire on winning the important accolade.
 
"Skyhire's been a JLG customer for nine or ten years now and I've worked with Robert and the team during this time, so I know they're a great, hard-working team who thoroughly deserve this award."
