The RUBBLE MASTER and Maximus developed RM HS3500M compact screen
RUBBLE MASTER, the Austrian global market crushing and screening equipment manufacturer, has become the majority owner of Maximus, the Northern Irish quarrying OEM.
Founded in Northern Ireland in 2004 and currently employing 120 people, Maximus manufactures crushers, mobile tracked screens, scalpers, washing plants and conveyors. RUBBLE MASTER has stressed that both brands will continue to exist and complement each other. The Maximus employees in Northern Ireland, the management team, 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, RUBBLE MASTER 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,” adds RUBBLE MASTER CFO, Günther Weissenberger.
The Maximus deal also allows RUBBLE MASTER to extend its group product range. The first outcome of the cooperation between the two companies is the new RM HS3500M compact screen. RUBBLE MASTER says the successful cooperation in developing new products is expected to intensify following the finalisation of the majority ownership deal.
