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."

With an Acculoader automatic loading system, even smaller yards can take advantage of surging overseas demand for containerized scrap metal
Traditionally, recyclers across Canada have sent a huge percentage of their recovered scrap metal to Hamilton, Ontario, or Pennsylvania in the U.S., via open-top rail cars and truck trailers. The scrap is then melted down and turned into new steel. This is still the case for much of our scrap steel, but recently the growing trend toward containerization has introduced new opportunities for efficient, cost-effective shipping of both non-ferrous and ferrous materials to overseas markets.
