Max has always promptly identified up-to-date needs, and in its founding period from 1942 and 1950s, Max produced Japan's first small-sized stapler, hand tacker , and drafting machine. These early products gained the confidence of many customers, and Max became clearly involved in the fields of products for 'fastening', 'binding' and 'drawing'.
In the 1960s and 70s, through the development of pneumatic technology, Max nailers became air-powered, and the market for these products extended to cover fur-niture, packaging and construction. Nailer consumables changed from staples to nails, and the materials for which the nailers were used also expanded from wood to steel plate and concrete. The use of nails meant that nailers came to be used in all markets, and Max became Japan's top manufacturer of nailers in both name and reality.
Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, electronics technologies were introduced and Max created new markets through the introduction of electronics into the office equipment such as check writers, time recorders, and staplers.
In addition, Max introduced the new concept products for the next generation by uniting the accumulated technology, for example, high-pressure operated pneumatic nailing system (SUPER NAILER), re-chargeable battery operated re-bar tying tools (RE-BAR TYER), built-in electronic staplers for copier machines (AUTO STATPLER) and lettering machines (Bepop).
As the 21st Century has begun, the concrete tool business and the housing environmental equipments are newly added into MAX lines of business.
Max will keep continuing to insist on “Making Products that fully satisfy People who use them” in the future too.
