Mobile crushing and screening machinery manufacturer Rockster has moved to a new base that it says will double its production capacity.
The Austrian company has just (in mid-June) completed the move to the 10,000m² property in Neumarkt im Mühlkreis, Upper Austria. It says the step is necessary due to continuous expansion, an extended product line and shorter delivery deadlines.
Rockster was established 15 years ago in the town of Enns and since then has developed two patented systems for mobile crushers and expanded its distribution network worldwide. A new head office with a 7.000m² warehouse was set up in Ennsdorf in 2008, and subsidiaries Rockster North-America, Rockster China and Rockster Germany were established between 2013 and 2016.
The new property in Matzelsdorf, in the municipality of Neumarkt in Upper Austria, was acquired in January this year. The first machine to be produced at the new assembly line will be the track-mounted impact crusher R1000S.

"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," said CEO Wolfgang Kormann.
As part of the relocation, the company name Kormann Rockster Recycler GmbH has also been changed to Rockster Austria International GmbH. The company says the name change will accentuate and better define the international nature of its operation, needs and future goals.
As part of the move Rockster plans to hire up to 20 new employees, and Kormann says the relocation will offer improved growth potential due to the availability of a larger space.
"Standstill means regression," said Kormann. “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.“
