The Eazi Group Pty Ltd, JLG’s sole distributor for Southern Africa, recently ordered 100 JLG units with a total value of $6.3 million. The package includes several Ultrabooms, compact crawlers, RT Scissors and super compact telehandlers. The majority of new products are for Eazi’s rental fleet, while some of the more popular products were ordered by the sales division to improve retail lead times.
Eazi Sales & Service, JLG distributor since 2010, headquartered in Midrand, South Africa, is a 100% South African-owned company. Nationally the company operates from locations in Gauteng, KwaZulu Natal, Western and Eastern Cape. Sales and after sales support are offered in the Southern Africa region.

- The 530LRT: newest rough terrain scissor lift offers superior terrainability for tough jobsites, thanks to a standard oscillating axle.

The Eazi Group has a strict commitment to safety and productivity. Its ground-breaking work in quantifying the cost and time saving potential of its work-at-height solutions has proven invaluable to Eazi Access customers over the years.
