Paul McDonnell, Maxim’s Chief Executive Officer, stated: “We are excited to announce the pricing of our bond offering and are highly encouraged by investors’ support of the Company. We have continued to deliver improved results, as highlighted in our 2Q press release, in which we noted our record financial results for the quarter and twelve months ended June 30, 2023. We are also encouraged by our ratings upgrade from Moody’s, which reflects the positive momentum in the business.” 

“As the only coast-to-coast lifting solutions provider, we believe that Maxim is uniquely positioned to capture the potential growth across key customer verticals throughout our footprint, specifically in infrastructure, industrial manufacturing, and renewable energy,” added McDonnell.
