Alta Expands Construction Equipment Business With Acquisition of Gibson Machinery

Tue September 07, 2021 - Midwest Edition

Alta Equipment Group Inc. announced Sept. 2 that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Gibson Machinery LLC, a privately held premium equipment distributor based in Oakwood Village, near Cleveland, Ohio. The acquisition expands Alta's construction equipment footprint to 32 locations in eight states and adds several new original equipment manufacturing (OEM) partners.

The family-owned Gibson Machinery offers a full-line of heavy equipment product lines and specialty attachments, as well as service, rentals, replacement parts and equipment financing. Gibson serves a wide variety of customers in the construction, recycling and steel and demolition markets.

"Adding the Gibson team to the Alta family supports our growth within the Great Lakes region while broadening our best-in-class product portfolio and service capabilities," said Ryan Greenawalt, chief executive officer of Alta. "The transaction presents a good opportunity to expand our service operation and OEM relationships. We look forward to building on Gibson's reputation for excellent service and growing our presence in the important northern Ohio market as we continue to execute on our growth strategy of expanding our geographic footprint into key markets."

Gibson Machinery generated approximately $19 million in revenue and had adjusted EBITDA of approximately $3.2 million for the trailing-twelve-month period ended June 2021. Terms of the acquisition will be disclosed upon closing. The transaction is expected to close in late Q3 or early Q4 of 2021, subject to customary conditions.
