Maxey Manufacturing began in 1969 when agricultural engineer Loren Maxey purchased a small manufacturing business in Fort Collins, Colorado. Along the way, he needed to design and build trailers for the center pivot irrigation business he also owned, and word quickly spread about the quality of his work – being an engineer, every trailer he built was high quality and precisely engineered. Soon his manufacturing company became Maxey Inc. and was building innovative trailers and truck bodies for farmers, ranchers, and businesses throughout northern Colorado, southern Wyoming, and southwestern Nebraska.
Eventually because of customer demand, Maxey began selling other trailer lines under the business name Max-Air Trailers. Then Maxey Truck Equipment was added to the Maxey family to provide commercial customers with the truck bodies and accessories they needed to do their jobs.
After working together for many years, MGS Incorporated acquired Maxey Companies in 2014. Today the regional retail store is known as Maxey Trailer Sales and Truck Fitting, a part of the MGS Trailer Products Division.
