MAXCO Chain Merges with HKK Chain to Offer Customers Even Stronger Industrial Manufacturing and Power Transmission Solutions

Marietta, GA – May 2, 2023 – MAXCO Chain Ltd., a leading provider of industrial chains, sprockets, and wastewater treatment system components, is pleased to announce the completion of its merger with HKK Chain Corporation of America, a well-known supplier of high-quality industrial roller chains. MAXCO Chain Ltd. is now the combination of HKK Chain Corporation of America and SENQCIA Maxco, Ltd. (formerly Hitachi Maxco). This strategic move leverages the strengths of both companies to provide stronger solutions for customers across a wide range of industries.

As part of the merger, both companies will unite their high-performance roller chains under the “MAXCO” brand. This new brand will combine the best features of HKK “Superior Capacity Plus” with the INSPIRE SERIES™ SBR® product to create one of the best and most reliable roller chains in the world. The new MAXCO brand will be introduced soon with new packaging that identifies its lineage and will be recognizable to users of both the former HKK and INSPIRE SERIES™ brands.

Currently, MAXCO and HKK share a common field sales group comprised of regional managers, direct field sales personnel, and manufacturer’s representative companies. We are able to provide service nationwide through our network of warehouse facilities and support staff, which enables us to deliver products and services quickly and efficiently to customers across North America.

“We are thrilled to be joining forces with HKK Chain,” said Eric Pressley, Executive Vice President – Sales & Marketing at MAXCO Chain. “This merger will allow us to offer an even wider range of high-quality chain products to our customers, and we are excited about the possibilities this creates for the future of our company.”

MAXCO Chain has a long-standing commitment to providing high-quality products and services to its customers, and the merger with HKK is a testament to that commitment. This strategic partnership highlights the company’s dedication to growth and innovation in the industry, and customers can expect to see even more innovative products and services from MAXCO Chain in the coming months and years.

“The merger of Maxco and HKK is a natural fit,” said David Egbert, President of MAXCO Chain. “Together, we can create a stronger brand awareness for our distributors, more product solutions for our end users, and greater opportunities to expand our wastewater treatment product offerings in North America.”
