Based on the ISO 50001 (Energy Management System) program, the 50001-Ready program is designed to help facilities identify their energy management gaps, while providing technical tools and resources that help organizations build a culture of structured energy improvement. JLG’s Shippensburg facility manufactures mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) and telehandlers.

“JLG has long been a forerunner in the design and manufacture of environmentally friendly equipment and sustainable technologies,” said Frank Nerenhausen, president, JLG. “As the access industry leader, we view protecting the environment through responsible operations as one of our greatest responsibilities. As such, we continuously look for ways to reduce our carbon footprint.”

Nerenhausen added, “Strategic energy management not only helps to reduce our company’s energy related spending, but it also improves JLG business processes. I’d like to congratulate our Shippensburg management team for being progressive and the first of all Oshkosh plants to achieve the 50001 Ready recognition. This achievement positions JLG to implement compliant ISO 50001 programs well into the future.”

According to the DOE, implementing a structured energy management system can be a key step for 50001 Ready companies, including JLG, to:

  • Cut operational costs
  • Achieve continual operational improvement
  • Improve risk management
  • Stay competitive in the marketplace
