Alimak Group divests the US Rental operation to Bigge Crane and Rigging

Alimak Group, the global vertical access solution company, announces that it has entered into an agreement to divest its US Rental business with base in Atlanta, US, to Bigge Crane and Rigging

Alimak Group operates a small rental business in the US, whose origins predate the merger between Alimak and Hek in 1999. The US Rental business has been operated as a separate unit within the Alimak US operation. The divestment will allow a stronger focus on product sales as well as after sales services supporting Alimak´s entire product portfolio in the US and Canada.

“The divestment is a logical step in Alimak Group´s strategy of growth in its core business as it allows our US operation to fully focus on further expansion of our broad offering of products and aftersales services in North America. Bigge is one of America´s premier global crane companies and has been a long and valuable customer to Alimak. They have a vast experience of working with Alimak equipment and I feel confident that our existing rental customers will see benefits from the new owner”
