Max Elia. Founder and President

Max Elia has a passion for people, problem-solving and processes. His education at the Argentine National Military Academy offered an inter-disciplinary focus on engineering, physics, and machinery, where he excelled. Recognizing his extensive electrical and mechanical capabilities he was hired at a processing plant in Brooklyn, NY as a Mechanic; he quickly moved through the ranks to become Plant Engineer. He was successful but realized there was still one critical and personal component missing-- people. In 1990, armed with his experience and education, Max was determined to fulfill his true passion and started Systemax Technical Services. The company’s focus was on Machine-Man Interface and the vital need for companies to understand the “How To” of proper workplace safety practices and compliance. His knowledge of business processes, OSHA and ANSI Standards expertise, innovative thinking, and industry leading certification as CMSE® Certified Machinery Safety Expert (TÜV Nord) has helped Systemax Technical Services position itself as the prominent safety guarding and integration company in the United States.
