Growth in exports leads to job creation at Rubble Master Dungannon

Rapidly increasing sales and a steadily growing demand for screens led RM Group to expand in 2018 and buy the Northern Irish screen manufacturer Maximus Crushing and Screening. The company, which was orginally founded in Northern Ireland in 2004, developed and produced tracked mobile screens and was an excellent addition to the existing RM product and growth plans.

Commenting on the significant growth of Rubble Master Dungannon, Gerald Hanisch, owner and founder of the RM Group, said: “Following our acquisition of Maximus in 2018, we completed the rebrand of the Northern Ireland site to RM Dungannon in early 2020.

“The addition of the Dungannon business has complemented our core crushing business in Austria, and we’ve leveraged our global customer base to build a wider audience for RM Dungannon’s screen technology.

“This has strengthened our position in the market and resulted in increased orders across the RM Group.

“We are proud to be growing the business and significantly increasing our workforce in Dungannon.”

The 30 jobs are part of a greater expansion for the Dungannon site with investment of new, best-in-class technology and machinery due to be announced in 2022.

Commencing on its recruitment efforts, Günther Weissenberger, managing director of the RM Group, outlined the continuing challenges many Northern Ireland business are facing due to the Covid pandemic and Brexit Protocol.

He continued: “We understand the current challenges of the market in Northern Ireland, including the ongoing skills shortage and a buoyancy in the jobs market.

“However, we have worked hard across the business to ensure a strong management team is in place in RM Dungannon, we’re significantly investing in a company-wide training programme, we offer solid career paths and progression to all of our team members and we always ensure the highest safety standards across all working operations.

“The RM Group is committed to growing our Dungannon base and the future is bright for further expansion within the business.”

Applications are now open for all positions at RM Dungannon.”
