Recycling equipment veterans Stu Gamble and Brian Barlow to lead new company.
The Austria-based manufacturer of track-mounted crushers and screens, Kormann Rockster Recycler GmbH, has announced an agreement with two recycling equipment veterans to form Rockster Recycler North America and bring its line of products to North America. These include Rockster Recycler’s interchangeable jaw/impactor Duplex System and its Electric Hybrid crushing and screening plant. Partners Stu Gamble and Brian Barlow and a sales team are in the process of selling direct as they develop and support a recycle-, demolition- and aggregate-focused independent dealer network throughout the U.S. and Canada. A new North American website, www.rockster.us.com, is now available.
Gamble has developed and managed North American sales for several years with various market-related mobile and track-mounted equipment manufacturers, and Brian Barlow and his company Barlow Strategic Sales & Marketing have provided sales development and marketing services to several recycle and aggregate equipment manufacturers since 1991. The new headquarters is based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, with a parts and service center located in Webster, Massachusetts. Kormann Rockster Recycler GmbH also has contracted with Barlow Strategic Sales & Marketing for sales and dealer development and marketing support to assist the new company.
Rockster Recycler was established in 2004 and manufactures global track-mounted crushing and screening solutions. The manufacturer specializes in the design and production of track-mounted crushing and screening systems for processing asphalt, concrete, demolition waste and natural stone. More than 400 Rockster Recycler machines are working in a wide range of applications throughout the world.
“We are looking forward to expanding the reach of our Rockster Recycler line in North America, and are confident that the industry experience Stu Gamble and Brian Barlow bring to this relationship will help us achieve our goals for the North American market,” says Wolfgang Kormann, CEO of Kormann Rockster Recycler GmbH.
“Rockster Recycler has a strong brand recognition and reputation throughout Europe, as well as two very unique crushers in the patented, interchangeable jaw/impactor Duplex System and the hybrid electric and diesel crushing and screening plant,” says Gamble, vice president of sales. “We’re looking forward to growing the North American market and working one-on-one with dealers and contractors as we target the recycle, rental, construction and demolition market segments, as well as the aggregate market, with highly portable and adaptable mid-range track-mounted crushers and screens.”
Rockster Recycler crusher line includes track-mounted impact crushers, available in R700S, R900 and R1100 models, and track-mounted jaw crushers available in R800 and R1200 models. A patented, double-functional return-belt system, available on the R1100DS and R700S, allows the contractor to use the return belt as a stockpile conveyor. The screening line includes mobile two-deck screening plants, mobile three-deck screening plants and a mini-screen designed to separate materials in small spaces.
