Maxim Hires Industry Veterans to Lead Expansion of Its Pacific Northwest

Maxim Crane Works, LP, is pleased to welcome Travis Wilt and Alex Clark to lead its expansion of a fully operated and maintained fleet of crane related services in the Pacific Northwest. Travis will join Maxim as the VP for the Pacific Northwest Division and Alex will become the VP of Operations for the region. They will help to integrate the existing Coast/Maxim Division with Greg Bellcoff, VP of Sales and regional President Mark Swaney. “We are honored to have such an experienced team of industry experts join the Maxim Company of Families. In addition to Travis and Alex, Maxim has added a Hubbard, Oregon and downtown Portland facility to our ‘Perfect Partner’ network of full service branch operations. These new sites, along with existing branch locations in Pasco, WA, Rochester, WA and an additional Portland site will provide our customers in the PNW with the most comprehensive network of people and facilities in the industry,” said Frank Bardonaro, COO for Maxim.

Bryan Carlisle, CEO for Maxim added, “We are extremely pleased with the progress we have seen since the addition of the Coast/Essex team to our PNW operations over the past few years. Travis and Alex will lead our expansion into the operated and maintained services sector for this region while also ensuring that Maxim is able to support our customers with every type of lifting related service needed. We have 20 new cranes on order to complement the 150 already working in the region. The PNW regional cranes are supported by a combined fleet of nearly 200 tractors and trailers as well as over 100 full time operating engineers, mechanics and support team members. This is an exciting time for our team and another investment in people, fleet, safety and footprint to ensure that we are able to meet the demands of our expanding customer base,” added Carlisle.

“This is a great opportunity to provide our customers with industry leading equipment, safety and service,” stated Travis Wilt. “We are looking forward to joining the existing Maxim team and bringing the addition of fully operated and maintained services to the region,” he added. “We know the Maxim team very well. We are confident and excited that we will be able to leverage our operational experience and the entire Maxim fleet and footprint to ensure that we are the ‘Perfect Partner’ for all of our customer and employee needs,” added Alex Clark, VP of Operations.
