Anyone know who makes the Velomax hubs and rims on their road model wheels?

Depends on the wheel type you are looking at. Generation of ascent comps before most recent generation used velocity aeroheads. I believe the hubs are proprietary. The carbon ascents were Lew rims. Not sure about new generation ascents or their other models.

Horace is very close, the hubs are proprietary. The rims are made by Velocity, but are custom to Velomax specs. Most notably, they add a bit more material in the spoke bed since Velomax wheels use a very high spoke tension.
