Notice to the Elevator Industry and Elevator Professionals…
Minden, NV- Starting January 1, 2020 Maxton will no longer maintain repair or VEP services for their elevator control valves beyond the age of 20 years rolling forward.
The details are as follows:
- Effective 1/1/2020
- All Maxton valves manufactured prior to 2000, requiring replacement, will be “New only”
- All parts used exclusively on said valves above will no longer be available.
- Rolling forward each calendar year maintaining 20-year range
- 2-year warranty period still applies for rebuilt & VEP valves prior to this announcement
This decision comes from a continuous decrease in market demand for older valves versus buying new. Additionally, this progression gave way to slower inventory turns and increasing costs to maintain these programs. After looking at the data further Maxton determined that valves over 20 years of age saw the sharpest decline and the line was drawn.
