Under its MAXI Utility brand, MAXIMETAL has specialized in the design and manufacture of custom-fitted utility trucks since 1983. MAXIMETAL builds high-quality, fully-formed-and-welded bodies that resist corrosion better than extrusion bodies. Our experience building for the Canadian winter, along with painstaking attention to detail of a dedicated staff ensures you will receive an apparatus built for a lifetime of service in the harshest conditions.
MAXIMETAL uses state-of-the-art precision laser-cutting and CNC bending equipment to cut and form our parts from 5052-H32 marine grade aluminum and 6061-T6/6063-T5 for aluminum-extrusion subframes. A combination of MIG and TIG welding are used to craft our bodies in such a way as to resist corrosion and remain structurally sound over a lifetime of service in the harshest winter environments.
In the 35 years that we’ve been building trucks for Canada’s harshest, saltiest winter roads we’ve learned a thing or two about fighting corrosion. Details that matter:
A concept adopted from the “Toyota Production System” of LEAN manufacturing, the 5S method can offer some unique advantages for organizing a utility or rescue vehicle. This involves assessing everything to be present in a space, removing what’s unnecessary and organizing things logically in such a way that this process is repeatable by anyone participating. In the example of a fleet of multiple trucks this brings a much quicker process to get the truck in service, and provides flexibility of interchanging users of the vehicle with no loss of efficiency.
MAXIMETAL has been building bodies with added crew seating for 30 years for fire and utility customers and nothing is more important to us than crew safety. We are proud to provide only CMVSS certified crew seating. We have conducted destructive testing on our seat anchor systems and we have verified our crew cabs to meet ECE R29 and SAE J2422.
MAXIMETAL, under its MAXI Utility brand, specializes in the design and manufacture of custom-fitted utility trucks and trailers. No matter what your industry, satisfying your needs is our top priority.
What keeps our satisfied customers, some of the biggest utility fleets in Canada, coming back? Durability. Efficiency. On-time delivery. No surprises. And vehicles that help you perform to the max.
