RUBBLE MASTER was invited by the Department of Environmental Affairs of South Africa to be part of the construction and demolition waste recycling workshop to contribute the company’s know how about recycling in connection with environmental issues. As the Area Sales Manager of the only actively invited crushing manufacturer, Christian Windhager talked about the advantages recycling has for the environment.
C&D waste remains a significant contributor to landfill airspace consumption and accounts for up to 20 % of general waste in South Africa. Nevertheless, until now there were not any norms available, which means that the recycling company had no guidelines to refer to about how material has to be processed, which material is allowed to be recycled and which has to be disposed of. Due to these uncertainties, the recycling rate remains very low. By establishing specific guidelines and clarifying the companies’ questions, they should be encouraged to increase the recycling rate and minimize the waste deposited.
We are delighted that from 700 Upper Austrian companies with apprentice training schemes it was RUBBLE MASTER that won the INEO prize from the Austrian Chamber of Commerce as “Best medium-sized company for training apprentices in Upper Austria”.
The prize for exemplary apprentice training company 2016-2019 was awarded to RM for their commitment to apprentice training, responsible promotion of professional perspectives and the high quality of the apprentice training scheme. “We are very proud of this award and feel that this confirms the success of our strategy. From the very beginning, we wanted to make sure that our employees get a good start at work and can develop their careers. This is based on our excellent company culture that makes employees feel good and, as a result, lets them discover their full potential!” says a proud Gerald Hanisch, CEO and Founder of RUBBLE MASTER. Dr. Rudolf Trauner, President of the Upper Austrian Chamber of Commerce, handed over the prize to Gerald Hanisch and Regina Denkmayr, one of the RM apprentice trainers, in front of an audience of 500 at an official ceremony at the trade show ground in Wels / Upper Austria.
“A significant focus at RM was always to offer young people a perspective and enable them to enter a career in the company after completing their apprenticeship,” says Gerald Hanisch about the award, which really demonstrates excellent recognition of what our company and especially our apprentice trainers have achieved.
From more than 200 entries, RUBBLE MASTER are the proud winners of the Regional Award in the Industry category. We are pleased that our commitment to the region has been acknowledged with this prize and we will continue to focus heavily on our Linz location in future. Internationality in combination with regional identity in manufacturing is the recipe for success for RUBBLE MASTER. Thanks to strong growth in 2017, further investment will be made in our Pichling site to increase manufacturing space, along the lines of “based in Linz – at home all over the world”.
Our location in Upper Austria has always had major significance for RUBBLE MASTER. Every RM crusher is manufactured at our headquarters in Linz in order to ensure that high quality expectations are met in full before being sold worldwide. With an export share of 95 %, RM is successful on an international scale. Austria as a location makes a brand even more attractive: Austrian culture and quality awareness is demonstrated and promoted at events such as the RM Xperience Days for customers from around the world.
In addition to numerous projects with universities and technical colleges, RUBBLE MASTER also creates jobs through regional sponsoring and a special focus on apprentice training. Fittingly, for our 25-year anniversary we now employ more people in 2016 than ever before. It is precisely these 135 employees that are our most important success factor. “We are a great team that has many long-standing employees who have celebrated many successes over the years. As a large RM Family we will continue to do that in the future,” says Gerald Hanisch.
