Maxon Lift Corporation, the leading manufacturer of truck and trailer liftgates throughout the US, has launched a Canadian branch to support further growth in the North American country.

The introduction of Maxon Canada aims to facilitate business with Canadian customers by securing a local warehouse for finished goods in Ontario, and accommodates its rising market share in the republic during the past three years.

The warehouse will stock Maxon’s product line of liftgates, including its family of gas bottle delivery liftgates, for its Canadian distributors, and will be ready for full distribution capacity later this year.

We are committed to doing business in Canada and are consistently looking for ways to improve our business relationships with our Canadian distributors

Inventory of this new facility will include numerous Tuk-A-Way® models ranging between 2,000-5,000lbs capacities, and a selection of heavy-duty Columnlift® models, which are built with the most popular specs for the Canadian market – power down, galvanised and aluminum platforms.

Brent Stratton, Co-President at the US outfit, signalled, “We are committed to doing business in Canada and are consistently looking for ways to improve our business relationships with our Canadian distributors.” A press release also stated that this development is “but one of many steps in the future planning at Maxon.”

To eliminate issues with monetary conversions, Maxon will issue a Canadian price book and will conduct business in Canadian dollars.
