Article · June 25, 2009

Maxim specializes in the rental and sales of lift equipment including hydraulic truck cranes, rough terrain cranes, crawler cranes, tower cranes, conventional truck cranes, and boom trucks.

The acquisition added to Maxim’s expansion of its fleet of 230- to 300-ton sized crawlers. It also represented Maxim’s increased leadership role in a consolidating industry.

Platinum acquired Maxim in July 2008 in a public-to-private transaction.
