Maxim Crane Works has entered an agreement to acquire B&G Crane, a subsidiary of NCSG Crane & Heavy Haul Services and a provider of rental and lifting solutions in the USA’s Gulf Coast region.

The acquisition will enhance Maxim’s full service, nationwide crane rental and lifting solutions portfolio and expands its operations in one of the nation’s most critical regions, said the company. On closure of the deal, B&G Crane will be integrated into Maxim. As a result, B&G customers will have access to one of the largest fleets in the USA, with more than 150 cranes ranging in capacity from 4 tons (3.6 tonnes) to 825 tons (748 tonnes) and a supporting truck fleet in excess of 100 vehicles.

Bryan Carlisle, ceo of Maxim, said: “B&G Crane offers one of the most experienced teams of crane professionals in the region. Its state-of-the-art fleet provides customers with a ‘best in class’ brand of products, parts, services and rental equipment. We are confident that the combination of B&G and Maxim will bring added value to our combined customer base, employees and the industry.”
