2018 marked the most successful year to date for Rubble Master.
With record sales and an export quota of 97 per cent, Rubble Master continues to hold their status as the world’s market leader in compact crushing and screening. Rubble Master’s continued success comes from higher product demand, healthy expansion in global markets, and new screening products. In order to keep up with demand, Rubble Master focuses heavily on an aggressive worldwide dealer network spanning over 110 countries.
The United States alone saw the addition of three new dealers bringing expansion into the Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana and Guam markets. As the first point of contact for any Rubble Master customer, the company’s dealers work tightly with the factory to ensure availability of equipment, immediate availability of parts and well trained, experienced service personnel. Over the last decade, Rubble Master has made tremendous investment in the North American market. Part of that investment includes hiring the best in the industry and allowing them the resources to pursue opportunities within the market. Rubble Master gives their managers the freedom to look at the crushing and screening world differently, resulting in new ideas and opened doors for the product line and dealer network worldwide.
Seeing the upward trend in demand for Rubble Master products, the company has been busy expanding capabilities both in Europe and the United States. In the United States, it has doubled their North American parts supply warehouse and personnel resulting in a 90 per cent fulfillment rate. This means dealers can place larger stock orders and receive their shipments faster than ever before. In Europe, the company has expanded the main crusher assembly line in Austria by building a fourth production line on the main Rubble Master campus. Secondly, with the acquisition of Maximus, Rubble Master is now producing scalping and sizing screens and stackers at their Northern Ireland location.
Seeing quick success in 2018, the market for this aspect of the business has grown tenfold. Under Rubble Master control, the Northern Ireland division is set to meet all 2019 pre-orders on time as promised.
Alex Taubinger, vice-president of Rubble Master Americas Corp. comments, “2018 was all the proof we needed to know we’re on to something. As it stands now, Maximus’ production capabilities will allow us to service our customers’ needs and demands for high quality screens and stackers as well continue to expand into new markets worldwide. It’s an exciting time to be part of the RM family.”
Rubble Master’s world-wide success has been the result of unwavering vision and leadership by Gerald Hanisch. Gerald is the founder and CEO of Rubble Master, having started the company nearly 30 years ago.
“I see it as the industry coming full circle,” he said. “Thirty years ago people were questioning if there was even a market for compact crushers. Today those same people are desperately playing catch up to where we were a decade ago.”
As 2019 begins, Rubble Master is looking toward the coming year with optimism. Doubling our foot print at the World of Asphalt/Agg1 show, the company is showcasing two units: the RM90GO! impact crusher and the HS3500M scalping screen. Also, during the show, Rubble Master will host a press conference giving the media direct access to Gerald Hanisch.
With BAUMA 2019 just over the horizon, Rubble Master promises to release two pieces of new equipment designed to challenge the way we think of modern crushing and screening.
About Rubble Master
CEO Gerald Hanisch founded Rubble Master over 25 years ago, when others were tentative about recycling construction and demolition waste. In 1992, Rubble Master launched the first compact crusher for the recycling of leftover bricks, asphalt, concrete, or other debris. Aggregate obtained this way are used as fill, base or subbase material in many industries and projects. Contractors worldwide began to experience the efficiency and profit-making opportunities the machine provided on the jobsite. In 1997, new manufacturing breakthroughs led to exports accounting for over 97 per cent of business, making Rubble Master a world market leader in compact crushing. Rubble Master is currently represented by more than 80 dealers in over 110 countries on all seven continents. With its extensive dealer network in the United States and Canada, and a complete parts and service hub in Memphis, Tenn., Rubble Master provides superior customer and product support throughout North America.
