In may 2017,
The MEDIACO Group has acquired one of the largest cranes on the European market and the largest and most powerful crane in France (670 T at 21m reach): an LG1750 (lattice crane on mobile carriers with a capacity of 750 T), capable of handling all wind turbine assemblies (147T at 120m) as well as the most important national contracts, including the construction sites of the Greater Paris area. To date, MEDIACO MAXILIFT has 15 cranes of more than 500 tons spread over the national territory.
In 2017, an LG1750 (lattice crane on mobile carriers with a capacity of 750 tons) was added to the group's fleet at the Mediaco Maxilift subsidiary. It is used for large-scale projects, such as wind turbine assembly.
MEDIACO acquires the Altead group, the 3rd largest lifting company in France, with 190 cranes, 500 employees and 15 branches.
This acquisition allows the group to increase its equipment base and its national presence and demonstrates the family group's determination to grow and develop.
The company SE LEVAGE based in Haute-Savoie and its 5 agencies: Frangy, Annecy, Chambéry, Lyon and Orleans join the MEDIACO group.
The Heavy Lifting department based in Haute-Savoie and Orleans, has 5 cranes from 500T to 1200T which will be integrated to MEDIACO MAXILIFT.
SE LEVAGE SWISS, now MEDIACO SWISS, will also allow the Mediaco group to establish itself in Switzerland from 2021.
The merger with SE LEVAGE will enable the family-owned group from Marseilles to strengthen its regional positions with a network of more than 15 agencies in the Rhône-Alpes region out of the group's 85 national agencies.
The MEDIACO Group has recorded a +49% increase in turnover over the last 5 years and now has 840 cranes ranging from 35 to 1,200 tons, 85 agencies, and 2,500 employees, making it the leading group in France and the third largest in Europe.
