Finning will be purchasing 35 per cent of Maxim Power Corp., a Calgary-based small power plant maker, and the company will be also be buying Diperk, an engine and gen-set distribution company in Chile.

“We formed a separate global power and energy systems group in 2001 to be able to take advantage of the growth in this sector,” says Doug Whitehead, Finning’s chief executive.
