Breaking new ground for a new dimension of recycling machines


Source: Rubble Master HMH GmbH

HMH is recognised today as a leading Linz based company and the global industry leader for compact, RUBBLE MASTER brand mobile recycling machines. Founded as a one-man company back in 1991, the 'Great Place to Work' now already offers over 100 people both perspectives and secure jobs. Continuous expansion in all markets and the incessant further development of the organisation and the products have now led to another milestone: a purpose-built new building which is also an architectural statement.

The official ground-breaking ceremony for the new building took place on Friday 6 June 2008 on the company's premises in Linz (Im Südpark 196). Politicians and network partners together with friends and neighbours from Pichling joined Managing Director Gerald Hanisch and the HMH Engineering-Consulting-Trading GmbH team to witness the dawn of a new era. A press conference was held to discuss the details and there was also a talk show with the guests of honour in the marquee: Rudolf Trauner, President of the Upper Austrian Chamber of Commerce, Franz Dobusch, Mayor of Linz, Erich Watzl, Deputy Mayor and Susanne Wegscheider, Councillor.

All in all 7 million euros will be invested with a view to increasing production from the current figure of 140 to up to 500 crushers per year. The new production building with four assembly lines is scheduled to go into operation at the beginning of 2009, with the office building planned to be ready for the middle of 2009. The number of employees will rise to 150 by the year 2010.

Austrian Chamber of Commerce certificate for outstanding success in business
The innovative strength of HMH was highlighted during the ceremony. President Trauner congratulated the company on its success and presented founder and Managing Director Gerald Hanisch a certificate from the Austrian Chamber of Commerce in recognition of the services of the Linz based company to the Austrian economy. Franz Dobusch, Mayor of Linz, emphasised the importance of companies such as HMH for the growth of the entire economy in the Linz region. Deputy Mayor Watzl spoke about the interplay of art, culture and business and praised HMH as an excellent training centre. Councillor Wegscheider and HMH were pleased about the international presence of the RUBBLE MASTER products from Linz.

The celebration was rounded off as always by an extraordinary cultural programme: Ali Andress got the artistic part under way with a didgeridoo performance. Peter Androsch, Christian Steinbacher and Peter Kuthan then joined host Gerald Hanisch to present the 3 HMH contributions for the Cultural Capital year linz09. And Kollegium Kalksburg, the three 'truly dilettantish' band leaders, played their new programme 'Imma des söwe'. All in all a successful celebration for an innovative, dynamic company.
