Maximus Rebrands to become RM Dungannon
Two leading manufacturers unite under one strong, worldwide brand...
From January 2020, Irish screen manufacturer Maximus will now become part of the RM Group in name. This step follows the acquisition of Maximus by RUBBLE MASTER, the Austrian world market leader in Compact Crushing in 2018. The two sites, RM Dungannon as expert in the screening sector and RM Headquarters at Linz as crushing specialist, are now united under one strong, worldwide brand.
Founded in Northern Ireland, the company has been owned by the RM Group since 2018. Tracked mobile screens are produced in Northern Ireland and perfectly complement the RUBBLE MASTER product range. Their collaboration in recent years has certainly had a positive impact on the sales figures, as shown by a growth of 15 % in 2019.
“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. A major focus was put on the restructuring of processes and market and product evaluation. 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 centres of excellence have emerged - the production site in Northern Ireland as the 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 that we appear on the market as a strong, full solution provider with one brand name - the RM Group," explains Hanisch. Consistent branding as the 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 centres of excellence, we offer lifetime support for all RM products worldwide - 24 hours a day, for the lifetime of the machine," adds Hanisch.
