Our Story

Harold Higman, Sr. founded Higman Sand & Gravel in 1939. Since equipment was hard to come by at the time, he had to be innovative in his approach, and consequently, designed much of his own equipment. Harold Higman, Jr. formed Masaba in 1962, incorporating what he had learned from his father and began building equipment tough enough to withstand the everyday abuse of mining environments.

Harold’s son, Jerad took over Masaba in 1999. With a degree in mechanical engineering and having grown up working side-by-side with his father, he learned what it takes to build the most rugged equipment in the industry and has built a talented team that works closely with their customers to provide customized solutions.

Our products reputation of strength and reliability comes not only from the high level of engineering and quality manufacturing processes, but our family of employees who take great pride in their work, knowing they are helping to build the world’s infrastructure.
