Dale Stoddard, president of Alimak Inc. stated that this alliance is in keeping with the strategy of aligning our brands with leaders in all markets served by our brands and we are pleased that Maxim Crane Works has chosen Alimak Hek as the brand to drive their market strategy. We look forward to working with Maxim to drive our businesses and to enhance our mutual customer’s experience.

“Maxim is focused on value creation and turn-key services for our customers throughout the country,” stated Frank Bardonaro, chief operating officer for Maxim. “The decision to expand our geographic and fleet footprint of our Material Hoisting operations is one of the many positive outcomes of our recent Coast Crane acquisition and our strategic planning team’s cooperation. Coast has a great history with Alimak and we are proud to continue the relationship with the industry leading provider of hoisting equipment,” added Bardonaro.

“As part of our continuous improvement processes Maxim is constantly working to complement and increase the services we provide to our strategic partners,” added Bryan Carlisle, CEO for Maxim. “Our strategic planning team for Towers and Hoisting Equipment identified the need to expand into this market. Matt Hyden, Scott Brandstadt and Greg Bellcoff from our Tower Crane Leadership Team worked with Frank and Alimak to put together a plan that will ensure our customers continue to receive “best of class” equipment and services for every aspect of their project. We have over 300 tower cranes working in the US and most of the projects need a hoist of some kind. Our goal will be to provide the crane and the hoist for every project and we look forward to the new Alimak’s reaching our customers in the immediate future,” said Carlisle.
