Precision Engineering for Anchoring Systems

Maxwell has long been recognised as the industry leader when it comes to innovative design of anchoring equipment. By employing top calibre people with solid theoretical and practical backgrounds in the marine industry, Maxwell is able to satisfy the needs of a demanding market with the design of product that consistently exceeds the expectations of its customers.

Applying the latest in CAD design and practical R & D on every product guarantees that, when a Maxwell product is introduced, it will be to the highest engineering standards, innovation and reliability. Even though classification society approval may not always be required, Maxwell design their equipment to exceed the demanding requirements of these certifying authorities.

Maxwell have committed to ensuring that their plant and machinery are of the highest standard. They strive to produce equipment that will be the benchmark against which their competitors will be judged.

Initial engineering design is translated, via sophisticated CAD/CAM technology, to the factory floor where conceptual design becomes a solid product. New product ideas are rigorously tested before the final manufactured equipment is released to the market. Users from the Pacific Islands to the Mediterranean have come to rely on Maxwell’s attention to detail and understanding of the rigorous environment in which the product will be used.

Maxwell’s exacting manufacturing standards and commitment to quality spans the entire supply chain. Throughout the production cycle every Maxwell employee has been empowered with the authority to accept or reject components that live or do not live up to the highest standards. All employees are educated and trained with excellence in mind. Quality engineering is assured by instilling in everyone the basic adage, “Would you want this product on your boat?” During assembly a final quality check and sign off by a qualified engineer is performed. It is during this process that compliance testing is carried out ensuring that every windlass and capstan will perform to the original design specification. Maxwell’s goal is to deliver the highest quality product on time to the exacting demands of their customers world-wide.
