After careful evaluation of MAXCO CORPORATION’s existing businesses, it was determined that RJE could best provide a platform for sustainable growth of the industrial chain business and therefore MAXCO CORPORATION has decided to transfer the shares of MAXCO CHAIN CORPORATION (Japan) and MAXCO MAXCO, Ltd (USA) to JCH, which is controlled by RJE.
