Record growth for Rubble Master in 2017Published 22/2 at 12:43
Austrian mobile crushing and screening manufacturer Rubble Master has reported a 27% increase in turnover in 2017. Growth has been put down to strong products and a successful expansion of its sales network, as well as developments in its customer and supplier relationships.
The considerable sales growth follows on from the company’s anniversary in 2016, with the intention now being for growth to be continued through the successful expansion of its global sales network in Asia, America and Australia.
The dealership network is already extensive, with Rubble Master currently being represented by 70 sales partners throughout the world. "We have managed to grow our business activities particularly in Asia and Australia thanks to some new dealers with strong local ties," stated Rubble Master CEO Gerald Hanisch. The development of the dealership network has seen around 170 mobile crushers being shipped, with Nepal and Indonesia being destinations for the first time.
As well as sales experiencing growth, the company has placed a great deal of emphasis on developing its relationships with its suppliers. This has led to further integration of the supply chain which was identified as a long term project which will be continued throughout 2018.
"As a company which exports 95% (of its products) we are conscious of our local roots. The supplier strategy, which is based on sustainability, has led a conscious decision in favour of local suppliers. This is a further development of our CSR strategy which we already practice in respect of our employees, customers and products. We aim to take this development even further over the coming years," so adds Gerald.
The aim in 2018 is to again focus on innovative solutions such as Spec2App. This was launched last year as a concept in which a multitude of different requirements can be fulfilled with one crusher due to its platform strategy.
