Who We Are

Why Maxari?

Our goal is to eliminate the risk when sourcing, importing, and exporting equipment to both American and foreign buyers

Over the last 20 years, US businesses have had access to plentiful and inexpensive supply of goods and equipment. This has come at the cost of US jobs and manufacturing. Maxari is committed to reshoring production and sourcing goods from US manufacturers.

Our extensive distributorship agreements allow us to offer goods to government agencies and enterprise clients at manufacturer pricing (i.e. lower than wholesale). This creates a win for the manufacturer by leveraging our distributor network. A win for our client by sourcing US-made products from a small business. And a win for Maxari by allowing us to develop a deeper and longer relationship with our clients.

VISION

To be the preeminent supplier for high quality, fit-for-purpose and competitively priced equipment for government and enterprise clients around the world
