It all began back in 1991 when an idea came to Gerald Hanisch, founder and CEO of RUBBLE MASTER. The goal was to give as many entrepreneurs as possible the chance to use mobile compact crushing for value enhancement. It was with this innovative concept that we created a market: on-site recycling. We have concentrated on our core competences since the beginning: development, marketing and service for mobile crushers in the compact class. RUBBLE MASTER HMH GmbH has made a name for itself around the world with the RM Compact Crushing brand and the RM business model for profitable processing. RM worldwide: a qualified dealer network and RM Sales Partners enable you to implement RM business models around the globe.

A visionary has fulfilled his personal dream with a remarkable piece of architecture in Linz-Pichling, Austria. This visionary is Gerald Hanisch – company founder, art lover, meticulous fighter for top quality, international thinker and committed to sustainability for 25 years.
He founded RUBBLE MASTER in 1991 with the ambition of one day leading the market for crushers with so-called Compact Recyclers. 'Back then people were tentatively beginning to think about reusing materials on construction sites,' says Hanisch, explaining the strategic approach.
It was already clear at the time that rubble recycling would become a veritable gold mine. 'We worked meticulously on improving our machines all the time with the aim of giving as many entrepreneurs as possible the opportunity to use mobile rubble recycling of asphalt, C&D waste as well as the crushing for natural stone for added value,' says Hanisch, explaining the intention behind the business model.
Thanks to the notably future-oriented technology of the RUBBLE MASTER crushers, the machines also managed a breakthrough in the international marketplace. The company's continuous growth meant that it was necessary to expand the company headquarters in Linz-Pichling in 2008. In keeping with the environmental approach and the sustainability which is reflected throughout the company, the office complex was built as a passive-house construction. All eyes are on production which can be seen at all times from the office building through a glass facade which spans three floors. This assembly hall with ultramodern fabrication is a low-energy construction.
The leading Upper Austrian company has always concentrated on its core competencies – the development, sales and service of mobile crushers in the compact class and, as a result, rose consistently to become the global market leader with Compact Crushers under 30 tonnes. The RM 120 newly defines compact crushing: With only 35 tonnes the new flagship can recycle 350 t/h. RM Compact Crushers have the best relation between weight and output in the respective transport class.
The RM 120GO! can be used to crush a wide range of different materials. Based on the famed RM GO! principle, the RM 120GO! fulfils all the requirements of a reliable and user-friendly crusher.
RUBBLE MASTER has sold over 2,100 Compact Crushers around the world in the course of what is now 25 years of activity in this field. The striking yellow machines are sold in all continents. Besides the core markets of Central Europe and North America the company also has satisfied customers in Eastern Europe, Russia, Africa and South America.
RUBBLE MASTER's exports account for over 95% of business. The majority of the RM crushers are sold in the core European market. 'The North and South American market already accounts for a quarter of our turnover. This is where we see the biggest growth potential, also in the future. The perseverance we have shown in these markets in difficult phases has strengthened the trust placed in RM and our products,' says the convinced CEO Gerald Hanisch. RUBBLE MASTER more than meets the high service requirements of the Americans. Our own RM office in the USA enables us to expand here in a strategic way. Together with currently ten sales partners in the USA, RM stands for reliability and continuity in this market.
One focal point of RUBBLE MASTER lies in the field of Research and Development. 'We invest a great deal in research – for innovative solutions with top customer benefits,' says Hanisch, emphasising the high regard the company has for R&D. This investment will remain at a constantly high level over the upcoming years. The world market leader and inventor of onsite recycling, RM shares its technical know-how with its customers in the form of intuitively operable and lucrative mobile crushers.
We live the GO! Principle
With its ground-breaking technologies the globally active SME sets new standards all the time.
RUBBLE MASTER introduced the GO! Principle in 2009. In line with the claim '1-2-3 GO! Buy. Start. Earn money.', these crushers stand out through their intuitive operability. This gives the user the major benefit of being able to earn revenue immediately with the GO! models. 'This means that we support our customers to such an extent that all they have to do is literally push the button to get started,' explains Hanisch.
This GO! Principle was developed for the entire company based on user-friendliness, taking into account both technical and organisational requirements.
Short communication channels and clear organisational structures help to speed up reaction times so they are as fast as possible when required. 'Maximum availability and support in the event of a problem have top priority. We guarantee this through intensive training, experienced partners on site, the 24h service hotline and the RM Service Centre,' says Gerald Hanisch.
The RM SERVICE CENTRE has all the spares and wear parts needed for operating every type of compact RUBBLE MASTER crusher and screen system available on the market. Additionally the customer can turn to expert advice from highly trained specialists. This sound quality management also comes with far-reaching After Sales Service. Proactive service concepts and strong customer involvement are the cornerstones of service orientation at RUBBLE MASTER.
RUBBER MASTER offers what is called the RM Lifetime Support for the entire service life of the machine. The purchase of a RUBBLE MASTER signals the start of a long-term partnership with the customer. The manufacturer's competence is thus available to the customer not only in development and marketing but also extends beyond the purchase. With the comprehensive RUBBLE MASTER Lifetime Support, dedicated and highly trained RM service engineers regularly visit the machines on site to provide optimum support throughout the entire service life of a machine. The service portfolio includes immediate help when required and assistance in achieving the maximum performance from the RUBBLE MASTER crusher and screen units to process a wide range of materials cost-effectively.
'Green ideas in green buildings in which green products are made.' Sustainability is omnipresent at RUBBLE MASTER. The mobile Compact Crushers which process a remarkable variety of materials – construction debris and natural stone – emerge from offices and workshops built with an energy-efficient design.
The company's environmental compatibility stands out not only through the crushers themselves – RM machines work with and for the spirit of recycling, with crusher emissions fulfilling all regulations concerning permissible values, making them extremely popular with local authorities and residents. At RUBBLE MASTER, however, sustainability is the key not only in the environmental sector but also when it comes to social and economic issues.
Once again it has been shown that sustainable business practices lead to success. We are excited about the 13th Best Business Award for Sustainable Business Management of the entrepreneurs’ forum of the Danube-Moldau European region and the Trigos Award which is Austria’s award for Corporate Social Responsibility. The Trigos Award values companies’ holistic commitment in the social and ecological area. 'These awards in recognition of economic, social and environmental sustainability mean a lot to us,' says Gerald Hanisch, full of enthusiasm.
