Maverick Environmental Equipment

Maverick Environmental Equipment announced it has taken a new and exciting step forward in the development of its business and ability to service customers and grow together with them across all business areas. Maverick has merged with Grand Equipment Company of Hudsonville, Mich., a portfolio company of Cognitive Capital Partners (CCP).

Headquartered in Alma, Mich., Maverick is an equipment dealer of aggregate processing, waste recycling and environmental equipment, parts, attachments and services. Spanning four locations across Michigan, Ohio and California, Maverick offers multiple products from leading OEMs in the material processing and handling space.

"Our business has experienced tremendous growth during our first seven years, directly attributable to our top-of-the-line OEMs and our incredible team of employees," said Tim Smith and Charlie Stahl, co-founders of Maverick. "The quality of our brands along with the people we have supporting them will continue to be imperative to our continued success.

"Our new partnership with Grand Equipment Company unlocks incredible strategic value. This partnership not only improves our footprint, offerings and service, but lays the groundwork for continued success in the equipment industry."

"We are thrilled to partner with the Maverick team," said Jeff Grasman, chief executive officer of Grand Equipment. "Maverick is a highly recognized leader in the aggregate processing space and the combination of the two companies is a powerful step in the right direction as we continue to expand our geographic footprint, equipment offerings and service coverage. We see an incredible opportunity to better serve both our customers."

Maverick recently expanded its footprint into California to better serve the western markets. This operation is headed up by John O'Neill, a recognized leader in the aggregate industry. As a founding partner of Maverick and following a successful career as vice president of global sales of McCloskey International, he is now fully active in the management of the new company.

"We couldn't be more excited to start our partnership with Maverick," said Billy Smith, partner of CCP. "Tim and Charlie have done a tremendous job building Maverick from the ground up and the strategic partnership with Grand will help elevate both businesses to the next level."

"To our customers, we are looking forward to continuing to service your needs and as always, we are ready and able to support you however we can. There will be no changes in how you interact with us, your sales and service contacts will remain the same and are always available if you have any further questions," said Smith, Stahl and O'Neill. "Thank you for your business, your support, and your trust in Maverick Environmental and we look forward to meeting you all soon."

D.A. Davidson acted as the exclusive investment advisor for Maverick on the transaction.
