Over 400 international dealers and customers got together at the RM headquarters in Linz from 29 September to 1 October 2016 to see the latest RM innovations and share their knowledge and experiences with each other. Customers experienced the latest generation of the RM crushers live in a demonstration in a variety of applications ranging from natural stone to various recycling materials. Customers and dealers eagerly awaited the highlight of the demonstration, the RM 120GO!, and they were able to see how convincing its performance is. One spontaneous statement from a customer during the demo: “I’m going to buy one.”
RM GO! SMART, a digital support app, was presented as a further innovation.
At the 25-year gala in the evening, guests were able to experience the world of RUBBLE MASTER and above all sense the company’s values such as customer focus and absolute commitment to service. “For me, this gala is like a big family celebration, because everyone who is here is part of the RM family. I am delighted at how much we have achieved together over the last 25 years,” said an enthusiastic Gerald Hanisch.
Saturday (1 October 2016) was all about sharing knowledge. Dealers and customers were able to exchange and develop their knowledge and experiences in the form of case studies and brief insights into concrete projects in the course of an Xpert Xchange. “We are very proud that our customers find our idea so convincing on a day-to-day basis. We started 25 years ago as a pilot project and today we are the global market leader in mobile Compact Crushing with our exports accounting for over 95% of business in 2016. Thanks to the extremely future-oriented technology of our RM crushers we achieved the breakthrough from Linz into the international marketplace,” said Gerald Hanisch, explaining his business model in the course of the RUBBLE MASTER Xperience Days.
The joy could be seen on the faces of the best students at the Government School in Bota Land, Cameroon, when RUBBLE MASTER and the African Development Group surprised them with backpacks filled with school items.
The best students in six classes can now start out in the new school year with top equipment. Numerous other sponsored projects show that this social commitment is not just a single occurrence and is anchored in the corporate culture.
RUBBLE MASTER attaches great importance to social sustainability and it is a key part of the RM team spirit. The company also sponsors and supports a large number of clubs and social organisations. “It is important for us to show how we appreciate such dedication,” says Gerald Hanisch, CEO at RUBBLE MASTER.
It was proven once again that RM is a big family in which every single employee and external partner is important! To emphasise this fact, suppliers and employees were invited to a party on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the company. This was preceded by the first RM Suppliers’ Day during which suppliers were invited to be a part of the new era.
RUBBLE MASTER has big plans for the future. In order to achieve these goals, competent and reliable partners are essential. Due to the strategic significance of suppliers in meeting the targets, July 1 was more than just a celebration: RM welcomed its suppliers prior to this in the afternoon at the RM headquarters to present the new era with its vision and goals.
However, as it always takes two to make a successful partnership, RM not only wanted to pass on its own expectations to the suppliers, it also wanted to know more about their expectations of RM.
The around 60 suppliers were highly impressed by this exchange which was a premiere for them in this form.
The subsequent 25-year anniversary party with RM employees and suppliers also featured a number of highlights. The performance by Gary Howard, the former singer of the Flying Pickets, and Chris Harras became one to remember for many with the two of them being joined spontaneously by former Austrian Ski Federation racer Lizz Görgl on vocals. Fluglicht likewise made sure that people were in the appropriate party mood with their entertaining stage show.
Amidst a selection of cocktails and Mediterranean dishes RM not only celebrated its 25th anniversary but also the many years to come and the countless future projects which were presented as part of a proven Progress Day.
As a family-friendly company, it is important for RM to celebrate not only with its employees but also with their whole families. The youngest guests also had a lot of fun and took the opportunity to colour in an RM crusher and put the bouncy castle to the test.
“With this celebration we would like to thank all our employees for their hard work. Our thanks go to those employees who have been with us since day one and also the many others who have become part of the RM Family over the years. This team has played a crucial role in the success of the company. Without the hard work and commitment of each one of them, this success story would not have been possible,” says Gerald Hanisch, CEO and founder of the company.
