Maxwell Farm Service began operations in 1980 as an after work venture for owner, Paul Lisanti, with the help of a single employee. A small 2100 sq ft shop was constructed on the home farm. The main focus was on truck repairs with the addition of some farm equipment sales.
With increasing demand, Paul left his employment to become active full time in the operations of Maxwell Farm Service. He incorporated in October 1986 and added an additional employee to assist. An addition was added on to the existing shop, as well as an office.
Maxwell Farm Service was an authorized dealer, at this point, for Belarus, White, Cub Cadet, Versatile, Valtra and New Idea brand products. In the early 90’s Maxwell Farm Service was the top dealer for Canada the Belarus brand of product.
In 1993 a bigger building was necessary and a 8,100 square foot shop and retail outlet was constructed. Additional staff was also required to keep up with the demand.
Mennonite furniture sales were added to the vast list of products and services offered by Maxwell Farm Service in 2000 and additional space was added to accommodate this venture. It proved to be a wise decision and in 2009 Paul’s wife Tina formed a new company and moved to her own 13,000 sq ft retail location constructed on the property. Another building was also constructed and leased to South Gate Cabinets, who perform finishing for the Mennonite furniture.
Around the same time, a need for a local hardware source was recognized, and Canwel products were added to the retail operations of Maxwell Farm Service, being sold under a private banner. In 2009, an agreement was entered to be an authorized ACE Hardware store.
From 2006 through 2009 Belarus Canada’s head office was also located at Maxwell Farm Service and an additional 6,000 of warehouse and shop space was added to accommodate them.
KIOTI tractors and implements were added in 2005 and the quality and versatility of this product have increased traffic to Maxwell Farm Service.
After 30 years Paul and his family, along with a staff of 7, continue to serve the local community with quality products and services. A full hardware department, parts, service, and sales of KIOTI, Cub Cadet, Versatile and in the future Deutz Fahr, as well as used farm equipment sales make Maxwell Farm Service a one stop shopping experience.
