Bringing more than 35 years of industry experience to his role, Maxon provides nationwide technical support and product evaluation and testing, as well as sales management in the five-state region of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, portions of Iowa and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Previously, Maxon held roles in distribution, automation and technical sales at the district, regional and national levels. He has won awards for sales, service and technical support, and has multiple certifications in welding, cutting, HVAC and automation processes and applications.
