Established at Port Augusta in 2002, MAX today is a leading specialist lifting, transport and equipment hire company operating throughout South Australia and right across the country. Since start-up, we have invested a great deal in our team, operating systems and modern and flexible fleet, which can be counted among the nation’s best and most advanced.

Our company has a track record for innovative solutions and successfully handling large-scale complex projects for local, national and global companies. Industry sectors include oil and gas, mining and resources, power and energy, transport and infrastructure, and heavy industrial.

Our 100-strong team is located at our premises at Port Augusta, Whyalla and Adelaide and at customers’ sites under long-term contract arrangements.

Our remote work expertise is up there with the best in the country, including in central Australia’s harsh outback.

We take pride in our reputation for well-executed solutions on highly specialised projects, such as shut down and maintenance, recovery and derailment and heavy haulage.

Our services are on offer every day of the year, any time of the day or night.

Naturally, safety is our top priority and we have international-level quality and safety management systems certification.

Our company values are grounded in community and demonstrated in a culture based on mutual respect, honesty and personal accountability in all our dealings—with each other, our business partners and our customers. In keeping with our values we support many and varied community organisations across South Australia.
