Continuous expansion, high quality standards as well as short delivery deadlines made such a step necessary for the manufacturer of mobile crushing and screening machinery, Kormann Rockster Recycler GmbH from Ennsdorf. The acquisition of a 10 000 m² property in Neumarkt im Mühlkreis (Upper Austria) promises to provide a strong and needed force in a continuous growth and market demand.

 

"Standstill means regression" – CEO Wolfgang Kormann is convinced: „Continuous development is not only essential in the construction of our machinery, but also the infrastructure has to be adapted according to the innovations and an increased demand.“

Third location expansion within 15 years

Since its founding in 2004 in Enns, Rockster has developed two patented systems for mobile crushers and expanded its distribution network worldwide. The establishment of a new head office with a warehouse on 7000 m² in Ennsdorf in 2008, as well as founding of the subsidiaries Rockster North-America, Rockster China and Rockster Germany between 2013 and 2016 were enormous development steps to name just the few. Increasing sales, the extended product line and demand for shorter delivery times are main arguments that made the expansion of production necessary. The new property in Matzelsdorf, in the municipality of Neumarkt in Upper Austria, was acquired in January of this year in order to double Rockster’s production capacity. As part of the relocation, the company name: Kormann Rockster Recycler GmbH has also been changed to "Rockster Austria International GmbH" in order to accentuate and better define the international nature of the company, its needs and future goals.

Up to 20 new jobs

Rockster not only invests in a new company space, but also plans on hiring up to 20 new employees. Wolfgang Kormann expects the relocation to offer improved growth potential due to the availability of a larger space, but also offer the same development when it comes to employees. "One of the main reasons for investing in this part of Austria was the experience with employees that are from this very region – called “Mühlviertel”, says Kormann. They are known as loyal and diligent people with a positive attitude. In addition, I think it will be better to decentralize companies in the future, as the quality of life of employees will increase, thanks to better work-life balance. We want to create a modern production location where our employees feel bound and comfortable."

 

First Rockster Crusher from Neumarkt is planned for autumn

The first machine to be rolled off the assembly line in Neumarkt is the track-mounted impact crusher R1000S. Due to a number of features that this machine offers, it is a highly popular and frequently asked-for crusher. "It is our most technologically advanced mobile crusher and we are highly motivated to deliver one of our bestsellers as the first Crusher produced in Neumarkt this fall", says Kormann.

Since mid-June, most of the relocation has been completed and the Rockster team is motivated to start a new, improved and energized chapter in Rockster history.
