Company History

Maxcon Industries began as a private company, Maxwell Contracting, in 1970. The organisation shifted to its current location in 1974. Initially, the business concentrated on power plant steelwork. High quality general engineering remains the core of the business.


Maxcon Industries employs more than 80 full-time staff and has a long standing heavy commitment to apprenticeships and training. Staff include professional engineers, draftsmen, boilermakers, fitters & turners, painters and other trades enabling the company to provide a complete manufacturing, coating, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance service. Importantly, all personnel interact with each other, thus ensuring continuous feedback and depth of knowledge of staff. The result is high quality engineering production.
