Maxon Industries, Inc.
Maxon Construction Company of Dayton and Tell City, IN was granted the license to manufacture the Dumpcrete by Glen Maxon Jr. Together they developed the Side Dump Maxon Spreader and a Side Dump Carrier, later referred to as the “Maxon Method of Concrete Paving”. Although some jobs were successful hauling non-agitated concrete, other types of concrete were not suitable for transport over long distances. Glen Maxon Jr. received the first patent for an open top agitated concrete carrier called the Agitor. The Agitor had a conical shaped shell to allow an agitator to turn inside and keep the concrete consistent.
