One brand – two competence centres. Starting January 2020 RUBBLE MASTER and MAXIMUS will be united under the RM Group brand. This step follows the acquisition of Maximus by the Austrian world market leader in Compact Crushing in 2018. The two competence centres – RM Dungannon as the expert in screen technology and RM Headquarters in Linz as the specialist in crushers – are now united under a strong, worldwide brand.
Founded in Northern Ireland, the company has been part of the RM Group since 2018. Tracked mobile screens are produced in Northern Ireland and perfectly complement the RUBBLE MASTER product range to ensure the group’s ongoing success. This strategy was confirmed in 2019 by the RM Group’s growth of 15%. Their mutual cooperation in recent years has not only had a positive impact on the sales figures.
RUBBLE MASTER has always promoted a company culture that brings people together – customers, suppliers and network partners. In recent years this culture has enabled us to exchange knowledge with our location in Northern Ireland, develop and launch new products and expand our expertise in all areas,” says Gerald Hanisch, founder and owner of RUBBLE MASTER. The main focus will be on the reorganisation of processes and the evaluation of markets and products. In addition to customer benefits, many synergies have been employed over the years, such as shared suppliers and increased cooperation in innovation, product management and sales.
The initial partnership with Maximus has evolved much further. Over the last two years two competence centres have emerged – the production site in Northern Ireland as an expert for tracked mobile screens and the production site in Upper Austria as the world market leader for mobile crushers. “We see the rebranding as the next logical step so we appear on the market as a strong full solution provider with one brand name – the RM Group,” explains Hanisch. Uniform representation as RM Group is especially beneficial for the customer. As a full solution provider, the product range will appear in the same yellow livery, further synergies will be utilised and the team will be brought together. “We live and love long-term partnerships. With our two competence centres we offer lifetime support for all RM products worldwide – 24 hours a day, for the lifetime of the machine,” adds Hanisch.
