Prompted by the countries changeover from town gas to natural gas, the company was established by Geoffrey Robinson, who recognised the potential in the marketplace for providing both the public and private sectors in the north-east region with a facility to convert their coal and oil-fired boilers to gas. The company set up initially in Hutton Rudby, North Yorkshire - later relocating to The Green, Billingham. Due to its continued growth, the company moved to purpose-built premises on the Cowpen Industrial Estate in 1981.
The company had continued to grow its reputation as an outstanding mechanical contractor and Geoffrey recognised a new development in the marketplace with the emergence of a new technology pipe system, based on Medium Density Polyethylene. This complimented the companies primary activity - changing boiler firing to gas. Geoffrey Robinson Ltd, was the first private contractor in the north-east to purchase the necessary machinery and train its operatives to undertake butt fusion welding of this pipework. Others soon followed the adoption of this technology which is now mainstream within the gas and water industries.
In response to the demands of its customers and clients who required a one-stop shop for Mechanical and Electrical engineering, the company started to employ, train and develop its electrical division. Continued growth resulted in their offering being further supplemented with a dedicated ventilation, insulation and ductwork division.
With the turnover of the company now up to £8 million, Geoffrey Robinson had again outgrown their accommodation - resulting in a move to a much larger site just 100 meters away. New offices and workshops were built to meet the growing needs, providing enhanced manufacturing with adequate capacity for the various disciplines. Geoffrey Robinson continue to trade and work at this site for the benefit of their multitude of customers and clients.
The primary focus of Geoffrey’s efforts, has always been his customers. While maintaining pride in a family ethos, on January 1st 2014, he transferred the responsibilities for the day to day operation of the company to his son, Neal Robinson. Neal has picked up the baton and continues to run the company with the same principles of customer service, quality, safety and a strong family ethos. The company continues to thrive and maintain its strong connections with its employees providing, welfare, training and a secure future in the fields of sustainability and building services engineering.
