Maxon Industries Inc. makes concrete-moving equipment for the world’s largest projects

When concrete is poured for road projects and even many construction projects, it is usually transported in cement trucks, which have the traditional rotating, cylindrical drums mounted onto a truck chassis.

But when large amounts of concrete are being moved for bigger projects like hydroelectric dams, nuclear power plants and municipal sewer systems, developers and municipalities frequently turn to Milwaukee-based Maxon Industries Inc. for solutions.

Maxon Industries designs and builds systems that move concrete from production sites to where it will be placed.

Maxon Industries usually sells its projects to large municipal projects. About 80 percent of its business is done with overseas customers that are building dams, nuclear power plants, large tunnels, highway systems and airports.

“We chase large civil projects on a global basis,” said Bill Maxon, president and chief executive officer of the company. “In 2010, we did business in Russia, India, Pakistan, Turkey, Romania, Brazil and Spain.”
