Linamar Skyjack Group
Under the leadership of Mr. Boehler since 2011, Skyjack has aggressively expanded its business. Skyjack provides companies across the world with quality engineered, simple, and reliable access and telehandler equipment so that they maximize utilization and return on investment.
While Skyjack’s first products were scissor lifts, Mr. Boehler has championed the company as a full-line access and telehandler supplier. This ambition is reflected in the recent and continued introduction of boom lifts and an ongoing commitment to Skyjack’s telehandler range. Mr. Boehler is credited with making Skyjack the #3 manufacturer of aerial work platforms and has positioned the company for greater growth. He leads an executive team that prides itself on more than 100 years’ experience in the aerial work platform and rental business.
Since joining Skyjack in 2003, Mr. Boehler has held a number of positions in the company, including director of Product Safety, vice president of Engineering and vice president of Sales and Marketing. Prior to joining Skyjack, he spent five years with Tigercat and served as a military engineer with the Canadian Armed Forces.
Mr. Boehler is a prominent leader in the powered access industry. In 2013, he was elected to the Board of Directors of the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF). From 2006, Mr. Boehler has been chair of the ANSI A92.6 subcommittee, which is responsible for the U.S. standards on self-propelled elevating work platforms. He remains involved with other global standards development organizations and is the chair of the IPAF Manufacturers’ Technical Committee.
Mr. Boehler obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Science from the University of Western Ontario and holds the designation of Professional Engineer. He recently completed the Executive Development Program at the Ivey School of Business campus in London as part of his preparations for assuming his current position as president of Skyjack.
