Southwire Co. has completed its acquisition of the assets of Maxis LLC. Founded by electrical contractors nearly eight years ago, Maxis develops tools and equipment used in the installation and management of electrical wire and cable products.

“Being a part of Southwire gives us the opportunity to expand our sales
force, operating as one team with the same dedication to quality,
service and solutions-based product development. We can now build on
the strengths of both companies,” said James Jarvis, president of Maxis.

“It’s very important that we forge strong relationships with our
distributors while concentrating on the needs of the contractor,” said
Winn Wise, Southwire’s senior vice-president, Construction. “Our
customers expect to grow and we must continue to offer them a
compelling competitive advantage in the marketplace. With this
acquisition, we expect a smooth transition for both current and future
customers.”
