For over 40 years, Officine R.M. has been a world leader in the design, construction and sale of tannery machines. Something changed, however, in 2009 when a generational change brought new life into the company.â€¨
Tired of seeing piles of plastic bottles everywhere and having to crush them with almost medieval systems, the new Director decided, almost as a joke and mostly for fun, to design an application to make crushing bottles simpler and faster, as well as more compact and convenient.â€¨
Thus the first drawings were drafted, the first small-scale projects and prototypes were made, salvaging the necessary parts from unused machinery left lying around the office. Although derided by some, he insisted on improving the project until finally creating today's Maior Domus, a device capable of compacting any plastic bottle, tetra-pack container or can in just a few seconds.â€¨
To divide the manufacturing of tannery machines from that for environmentally-friendly products, the RM DOMUS brand was created.
