Rubble Master held its 2014 North American kickoff meeting Jan. 13 and 14 at CC&T in Folcroft, Pa.
Held annually in January at a Rubblemaster dealership, the meeting focuses on new products and services, the company's marketing strategies for the upcoming year as well as sales training and sales support for its dealers. This was the first time the kickoff meeting was held at CC&T.
Dealer representation was strong at the meeting with 10 dealers attending, with one from as far away as California.
Alex Taubinger, managing director of Rubblemaster Americas, was pleased with the two-day event.
“It was absolutely a good meeting,” he said. “It's important to have meetings like this; we get market feedback from our dealers, and we hear how the attitude is out there and our dealers' projections.”
Taubinger added that Rubblemaster dealers appeared to be very motivated during the meeting.
“We're in an upswing,” he said. “ConExpo is coming up and that is the most important show in the industry. With the upswing and ConExpo, we think this will be a great 2014. It's a great combo.”
Mike Chenet, president of CC&T, was equally optimistic about what 2014 holds for Rubblemaster and its dealership network.
“Hosting a meeting like this is a great way for CC&T to establish ourselves as a serious partner with Rubblemaster and its dealer group,” said Chenet. “Considering the rising costs for trucking and dump fees, these Rubblemaster impact crushers are really growing in popularity.
