Maxwell Product Innovation

Maxwell equipment is born of innovation and backed by years of experience in the manufacture of the world’s highest quality anchor windlasses, ancillary deck gear and stern handling products.

Maxwell’s innovative approach to design resulted in the introduction of automatic rope/chain windlasses to the global marine market during the mid 1990’s. These were a radical departure from all other windlasses, revolutionary in design and technical features. Building on the success of these products, Maxwell has recently designed and developed an exciting new RC range of automatic rope/chain windlasses. But it doesn't’t stop there! In the early part of 2012, Maxwell will be releasing their totally new RC12-10 and RC12-12 Vertical Series of rope/chain windlasses, complementing the existing, highly acclaimed RC Series windlasses introduced in 2010.

Maxwell has broken the design barriers yet again with the development of a vertical and horizontal rope/chain windlass range incorporating two unique and internationally patented features. The new RC and HRC Series attest to Maxwell’s ongoing commitment to innovative design and development.

Maxwell has continued to evolve its existing range of proven windlasses and capstans.

The new RC12 is the culmination of Maxwell’s evolution of a full range of automatic rope/chain windlasses suitable for use on vessels from 4.5metres (15 feet) to over 20 metres (65 feet).

Maxwell’s ongoing commitment to product development can also be seen in the upgrading of their ‘traditional’ and continually popular vertical VWC Series. Stalwarts since the early nineties, the VWC windlasses were always great performers and now, with advanced engineering features incorporated into their improved designs, they work even better.

Maxwell recognises that boat owners not only want equipment that works flawlessly, they want products that look good as well. To this end, Maxwell designers spend countless hours improving the look, functionality and robustness of all Maxwell products, as well as introducing new and highly innovative products such as the popular HRC6, HRC8, HRC10, RC6, RC8, RC10 and NEW RC12 Series.

With an ongoing commitment to excellence, product innovation, research and development, you can count on Maxwell
