The strong growth at RUBBLE MASTER in recent years is set to continue in 2018. The success story with rapidly increasing sales figures and the expansion of the RM Team has been boosted by RM becoming the majority owner of Maximus, the Northern Irish screen manufacturer.
Founded in Northern Ireland in 2004 and currently employing 120 people, the company develops and manufactures mobile tracked screens and complements very well the existing range of RUBBLE MASTER products and plans for growth. As a first step, the Austrian global leader in compact crushing has taken over the majority of Maximus.
Both brands will continue to exist and complement each other. The Maximus employees in Northern Ireland, the manufacturing locations and the Maximus sales and service network will all remain as they are.
“We are convinced that this partnership is a great opportunity for both companies to meet the future challenges of the market,” says Gerald Hanisch, CEO.
“In addition to the advantages for our customers, this takeover opens up synergies in many other areas such as with shared suppliers, for example,” reports Günther Weissenberger, CFO.
Extending the product range
The expansion also provides RUBBLE MASTER with the advantage of extending the product range. The first outcome of the cooperation between the two companies is already here. The new RM HS3500M compact screen was developed in a joint project between RM and Maximus. This successful cooperation in developing new products is now expected to intensify following the takeover.
