Maxon’s history is filled with innovation. In 1957, Max Lugash developed and patented the first liftgate that folds under the truck body- the Tuk-A-Way. Today, we continue Max’s spirit with the broadest, most advanced line of products available on the market. We continuously improve our products using state-of-the-art design techniques such as solid modeling software. We test our liftgates under extreme conditions in our R&D facility and in the field for maximum reliability and quality.
Whatever the application, Maxon has the liftgate to fit your need. Our extensive product line includes liftgates that can handle loads as small as 1250 pounds or as large as 6600 pounds. From the Mighty Max pickup truck liftgate to the premium level ride GPTLR Tuk-A-Way to the sophisticated BMR-A columnlift, our product line offers the widest range of choices within the industry.
Maxon takes a personal stake in the success of your business. We are the only company with both an inside and outside Technical Service department that provides complimentary training to thousands of distributors and end-users on the installation, operation, and maintenance of Maxon’s liftgates. All of our departments, from Engineering and R&D to Manufacturing, Shipping, and Sales have decades of experience understanding the needs of our customers. Maxon is still owned and managed by the same family that founded the company, and our dedication to customer support is unsurpassed.
