Our Company

We’re here to solve life safety code issues and expand flexibility and security…one space at a time.

Over 60 Years Transforming Spaces with Safe, Flexible Solutions

Here at Maxson, we have a long history spanning over six decades of successfully providing innovative products that deliver unique solutions. Our products provide wide span openings that maintain life safety code compliance, create flexible and reconfigurable spaces, and provide functional support through security and environmental control. Our mission is to provide an unmatched experience and support for our clients to help them transform their spaces using safe, flexible solutions.

Founded originally in 1955 as the Maxson-Betts company, E.W. “Max” Maxson and his business partner established a foundation of assisting architects during the design phase of the project while faithfully executing the delivery and installation of the products as designed. The company originally sold just doors and windows but quickly added specialty products like rolling steel doors and loading dock equipment over the next 20 years. In 1976, Max sold his stock to his partner to form Maxson and Associates, Inc. in order to serve his architectural and general contractor clients better and create a path for succession. Max lead the company through continued growth until his retirement in 1988.

Since then, Maxson and Associates has continued to thrive under the leadership of Max’s son, Bill, expanding its offering into space management and life safety products that complement its traditional product offering while greatly increasing its service business. Maxson remains a partner to architects and interior designers as full service, knowledgeable product representatives, ensuring the careful execution of their design through dependable construction execution and teamwork with the General Contractor. Every effort at Maxson is focused on a solid client experience, down to the day-to-day operation by the facility owner throughout the life cycle of the product. The options and capabilities offered today are unmatched by its competitors, and sets the Maxson team in a class of their own.
