Rubble Master acquires compact screen and crusher manufacturer Maximus
Full line of compact crushers and screeners brings new opportunities for customers in Canada and the U.S.
Rubble Master (RM) has acquired Northern Ireland-based screen manufacturer Maximus. Founded in 2004 and employing 120 people, Maximus will complement Rubble Master's existing range of products, helping to satisfy customers and support future growth. According to Rubble Master, for customers and dealers, this acquisition means a full line of crushing, recycling and screening products are now available with the same reliable, lifetime support and complete parts and service support customers have come to expect from their company.
"This investment allows us to improve our product offering globally, and specifically for the U.S. and Canadian markets," said Gerald Hanisch, president and owner of Rubble Master.
He says the venture is already driving new product developments and future growth. Initial results of the two companies' joint engineering and production capacities: the all-new RM HS3500M and RM HS5000M compact tracked scalping screens (shown above). These machines are already being nicknamed "Swiss-Army-Knife", because of their versatility to process a multitude of materials, including excavated C&D waste, asphalt slabs and millings, topsoil, mulch, gravel and more.
"This now opens up synergies in many areas," commented Günther Weissenberger, Rubble Master CFO. "We will benefit from shared suppliers and economies of scale."

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
