Skyjack's Mexico facility is ready for action

Skyjack has opened a new manufacturing facility in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico. 

The new 200,000 sqft. (18,600 sqm) plant will manufacture Skyjack’s telehandler and boom range following significant changes and increases in capacity at the company’s existing Canadian plants. 

“We have been at physical and labour capacity at our Canadian facilities for some time now and we have invested heavily in vertical integration there with a focus on DC slab scissors, vertical masts, and rough terrain scissors,” says Skyjack president Ken McDougall. “Moving the telehandler and boom range to the Ramos Arizpe plant will help pave the way for … growth and allows us to answer the increased demand we have for our telehandler and boom range.”

Miguel Angel Riquelme Solis, governor of Coahuila, who officially opened the facility, says the facility represents an investment of USD80 million and will add 600 jobs. “I would like to highlight Skyjack’s speedy preparation and their welcome to and training of Coahuila-based employees.”

Work began on the greenfield site in March 2022 and construction was conducted by Amistad. 

The opening represents the first part of a two-phase project. Phase two, which started later in 2022, will see an additional 490,000 sqft. (45,500 sqm) come on line in Q3 2023. “Once complete, the … vertically integrated facility will create an output which will represent a significant increase in unit terms when compared to Skyjack’s current (2022) global telehandler and boom capacity,” McDougall adds.
