Holt acquires Kardie Equipment/TGM Wind

By Lindsey Anderson05 January 2022

Caterpillar dealer Holt has acquired Kardie Equipment/TGM Wind Services, a leading North American distributor of the Bronto Skylift truck-mounted aerial work platforms.

Kardie Equipment/TGM Wind Services will retain its name and operate as an independent, wholly owned subsidiary of Holt.

“We are proud to be a part of the HOLT family of businesses, a values-based organization with a commitment to safety,” said Kevin Darby, founder of Kardie Equipment/TGM Wind Services.

“This partnership will allow for expanded products and services for our customers while making our operations more efficient.”

Kardie Equipment/TGM Wind Services will serve as a complementary business to other Holt divisions, offering Bronto Skylift platforms for sale and rent (with or without operators).

“Holt seeks to partner with like-minded organizations and Kardie Equipment/TGM Wind Services aligns perfectly with our core values,” said Peter J. Holt, CEO and general manager of Holt Cat.

“This acquisition will help us bring added value to our customers with a safe, premium product that supports multiple industries who have a need to reach challenging heights.”

Holt is Caterpillar dealer in Texas and its operations include a large equipment rental business. It also operates Holt Renewables, which installs solar energy panels.
