Max-Atlas Equipment International Inc. of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, the largest container chassis manufacturer in Canada, announces the sale of the Company to a new group of four shareholders.

“My associates and I are excited to join Max-Atlas and we look forward to using our expertise to expand its production capacity and to launch the next phase of its growth. Our vision will create a unique value proposition needed by the industry. I’m excited about the future and look forward to taking Max-Atlas to new heights,” said Stéphane Guérin, the Company’s new President and CEO.

Over the next few months, the former owners will work with the new shareholders to ensure a smooth, optimal transition of the Company’s operations and business relationships.

“My partners and I are very pleased to have found a succession team driven by human and entrepreneurial values, with the necessary skill set to ensure Max-Atlas will continue to thrive by reaching new markets,” explained Tibor Varga, co-founder of Max-Atlas.
