Amherst County, Va. - Rockster North America has opened a new international sales location in Amherst County.

“Amherst County was an ideal location for our company,” said Daniel Civinski, Rockster North America Director. “With lower taxes and great accessibility, we are now able to keep our operating and transportation costs down. The Port of Virginia allows us to bring our machines and parts directly to our new facility, which cuts down on permits and trucking fees. Amherst has welcomed us with open arms and given us great support. We will grow in our new location to better serve everyone and with the support of Amherst county we can see a great future.”
“Amherst welcomes another great business to the County and we are excited to have an international company recognize the benefits of growing their business here,” said Calvin Kennon, Chairman of the Economic Development Authority of Amherst County.
According to Rockster’s website, www.rockster.us.com, innovations like the patented DUPLEX system, the patented double functional return belt or the unique Hybrid Crusher, the company repeatedly demonstrates its progressive approach. “Our success depends on the success of our customers and dealers. Since 2004 to today we have grown to be a worldwide company by saving space in landfills and reducing the amount of trucking to create a more environmentally friendly earth.”
