Masaba, Inc. was formed in 1962 with a mission to design and build rugged equipment to withstand the demanding environments of the mining and aggregate industries. We know what it takes to make equipment that not only works, but lasts. Masaba’s wide range of products includes conveying and material handling equipment, portable and modular systems for crushing, screening and washing, and a variety of custom engineered solutions – all designed and manufactured specifically to the customer’s needs.
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 mission is to design and build rugged equipment for the world.
The fundamentals of the Masaba culture stem from a family-owned business that focuses on developing a team with the highest character and commitment to community, to the customer, and to the industries we serve. We are dedicated to our staff and consider everyone on the team to be part of the Masaba Family.
