Maxell has been producing world class products in Japan in the fields of energy (batteries, etc.) and storage (tape, disks, etc.) for the past 50 years.
Maxell has grown globally and rapidly since then, placing itself firmly as a world leader in production, design and research in the many new and diverse products it manufactures today. Just a brief list includes; consumer batteries, specialist and industrial batteries, award winning recordable media for consumers and the broadcast industry, RFID devices and systems, lenses, moulding equipment and much more.
Maxell leads competitors with globally important “greener” manufacturing and products in many areas, for example, strong CSR reports, bio-degradeable and/or recyclable packaging of many products, 0% mercury and 0% cadmium consumer batteries, and so on.
The name Maxell was formed by shortening the phrase “maximum capacity dry cell” to include only the first and last three letters and creating Maxell.
The Maxell name and trademark are owned by Hitachi Maxell Ltd, Japan, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi Ltd. Japan.
