History

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.


Testimonials

To whom it may concern,

Maxson  associates Inc. as contractors on my project, for smoke curtain installation, has been a stellar contractor. After many site visits to confirm our readiness for installation, in both buildings, they came through on the day of elevator inspection, beyond expectations.

In order to pass our inspection, we needed to replace one of the curtain motors, and the closest one was a 2 hour ride away. Without missing a beat, a tech was dispatched to retrieve one, and it was installed in time for inspection, and we passed.

I highly recommend Maxson associates, for any project you are considering.

Sincerely,

David Shelton  Superintendent  CM-LEAN

Your company has been successfully servicing our doors for quite some time now.  I know I can always count on your company to solve our door related issues in a prompt professional manner.

Recently, not knowing of your company, and in my absence, one of our associates contacted another company to perform service work on a door issue at our facility.  After that company made several visits to try and resolve the issue with no success, your company was contacted, and your Service Technician fixed our door problem on his first visit.

We appreciate the level of service we receive from your company and are looking forward to your company continuing to be the door company we rely on.

Sincerely

Thank you for your amazing Customer Service!

Being in the hospitality industry, our organization really puts a lot of emphasis on customer service to our clients.

Capital City/Lake Murray Country Regional Tourism Board was thrilled when we called you late last week with requested repairs to our new glass panels.  We recieved IMMEDIATE response from Maxson and Associats.  That’s what separates businesses apart and all of you should be proud of your service folks.

Again, thanks and we look forward to keeping you up to date on the success and reviews of your products.  Our Grand Opening is this Thursday!
