KHATMANDU: Rubble Master, with U.S. headquarters in Valparaiso, Indiana, is currently 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,” reports Gerald Hanisch, CEO a Rubble Master. Around 170 mobile crushers were shipped from Linz, Austria, in 2016, with Nepal and Indonesia also being on the list of destinations for the first time.
The last year was not only a new era in terms of products and sales, Rubble Master also attaches great importance to a responsible relationship with its suppliers. This is why the long-term integration of the supply chain was a key project which will be continued accordingly in 2017. “As a company which exports 95 percent, we are conscious of our local roots. The supplier strategy, which is based on sustainability—with the likewise conscious decision in favor of local suppliers—is a further development of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy, which we already practice in respect of our employees, customers and products. We aim to take this development and exchange even further over the coming years,” says Hanisch.
The investments in sales resulted in an increase in turnover of 27 percent in 2016. The aim this year is to again focus on solutions such as Spec2App, which was launched last year as a concept in which a multitude of different requirements can be fulfilled with one crusher through a platform strategy.
