Maxcess and Webex to merge

February 12, 2014

The merged company will operate as Maxcess, and retain the brands of Webex, Fife, Tidland and MAGPOWR.

Following the acquisition of Maxcess by Bertram Capital, the private equity firm will merge Maxcess and Webex Inc. The merged company will operate as Maxcess, and retain the brands of Webex, Fife, Tidland and MAGPOWR which together represent more than 200 years of history.

The merger of Maxcess and Webex brings new strength to both companies. The combination will leverage Maxcess’ global sales, service and manufacturing footprint to bring precision Webex roll products to the worldwide market; with the same level of engineering expertise, quality and support for which Maxcess brands have always been known.

For Webex customers, the precision idler, bowed, heat transfer and vacuum roll products with which they are familiar will now be supported by one of the largest local sales and service teams in the industry. Maxcess offers a global manufacturing footprint and a global network of sales representatives and field service personnel to serve and support customers locally, or wherever their installation may reside. Webex customers will also enjoy the opportunity to work with this same network to access premier web guiding, slitting, winding and tension control solutions. For Maxcess customers, the merger adds the critical precision idler, bowed, heat transfer and vacuum roll products already in use on their web lines to the guiding, slitting, winding and tension products available from the Fife, Tidland and MAGPOWR brands.
